An HIV/AIDS Workplace Policy for the Education Sector in the Caribbean

Documento de reunión | 9 de julio de 2011
This policy is based on the ILO code of practice on HIV/AIDS and the world of work, and was reviewed and modified by representatives from Ministries of Education and Labour, teacher trade unions, private employers and National AIDS Councils/Commissions during a tripartite workshop held in Kingston, Jamaica, 2005. For more information, see [meetings web page]

The policy covers the following key areas of action:
• prevention of HIV
• elimination of stigma and discrimination on the basis of real or perceived HIV status
• care, treatment and support of staff and students who are infected and/or affected by HIV and AIDS
• management and mitigation of the impact of HIV/AIDS in education institutions
• safe, healthy and non-violent work and study environments.
