Caribbean nations target HIV/AIDS in the workplace

>> Caribbean To Launch Regional HIV/AIDS Workplace Policy – Kaisernetwork.org

According to this report from the Kaiser Network,

Caribbean nations will establish national HIV/AIDS workplace policies as soon as a regional policy modeled after International Labour Organization guidelines is ready, the Jamaica Observer reports. According to Carl Browne, director of the Pan Caribbean Partnership Against HIV/AIDS who spoke at the XVII International AIDS Conference earlier this month, the organization will work with individual countries to implement national workplace policies tailored to specific needs with the goal of benefitting employees and their families. The policies will include support services and education programs, and a toolkit with relevant videos will be available for countries to provide to businesses.

The article cited in the Kaiser Report also discusses the success Jamaica has had in addressing HIV/AIDS in the workplace.
