Guidelines on HIV and AIDS for the postal sector
The International Labour Office (ILO), through its Programme on HIV and AIDS and the World of Work (ILO/AIDS) and the Sectoral Activities Department (SECTOR), in collaboration with the Universal Postal Union (UPU) and UNI Global Union (formerly Union Network International) have contributed to the formulation of the present Guidelines on HIV and AIDS and the postal sector and participated in the implementation of the first phase of the campaign in the following seven selected pilot countries: Brazil, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, China, Estonia, Mali and Nigeria.
The ILO Guidelines on HIV and AIDS for the postal sector consist of a compilation of a range of resources – including tools and information – that can be used by the different players in the postal sector to help slow the spread of the HIV. Although the Guidelines are based on the ILO Code of Practice on HIV and AIDS and the world of work and the accompanying training manual, this book also contains ideas that have been adapted to aspects that are specific to the postal sector. These Guidelines will also give effect to the recently adopted ILO Recommendation concerning HIV and AIDS and the World of Work, 2010 (No. 200), which places a strong emphasis on the unique role of employers’ and workers’ organizations in promoting and supporting sectoral, national and international efforts to respond to the epidemic.
