Strategic HIV/AIDS Response in Enterprises

The ILO’s Strategic HIV/AIDS Response in Enterprises (SHARE) taps into the resources of the public and private sectors for the benefit of workers, their families, and enterprises – not to mention national economies. SHARE’s principal objectives are to help overcome HIV employment-related discrimination and to prevent HIV by reducing risky behaviour among workers in selected economic sectors, especially those that might be more vulnerable to HIV due to working and related living conditions.

SHARE has been active in 24 countries. At the national level, over 16,500 key representatives of the tripartite constituents received HIV and AIDS awareness training and 16 countries now have a national tripartite policy on HIV and AIDS. At the enterprise level, the programme has partnered with over 700 workplaces reaching over one million workers.
