  • Managing HIV and AIDS in the World of Work: Experiences From Southern Africa, SAfAIDS

    HIV affects all of us and it is our collective responsibility as governments, the private sector, donors, NGOs and faith-based organisations, to join hands in the fight against the pandemic. Many donors, including HIVOS, have committed themselves to support the implementation of workplace policies as one of several strategies. We have offered training and technical support for partners on HIV awareness and policy development in Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Malawi and Zambia. After the initial training, several partners indicated that they lacked the capacity to develop a workplace policy. HIVOS then engaged SAfAIDS to provide technical support. SAfAIDS' involvement started with a survey in Zimbabwe, indicating that the vast majority (88,5%) felt the impact of HIV such as staff turnover, extended sick leave, time off to care for sick relatives or to attend funerals and requests for loans. Still, 11,5% of the Hivos partners were convinced that HIV didn't affect them at the workplace. The next step in the involvement of SAfAIDS was assistance to motivated partners to design an effective workplace policy. An intensive partnership between Hivos and SAfAIDS was born, leading to the publication of this book. more

  • Lessons from the Children and AIDS Regional Initiative (CARI): Child- and HIVsensitive social protection in Eastern and Southern Africa

    The Children and AIDS Regional Initiative (CARI) can be considered to have built on that momentum. The initiative represented is a five-year programme (2006-2011) to improve the wellbeing of orphans and children affected and made vulnerable by HIV and AIDS in terms of a large array of issues including health, education and child protection. CARI was funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the Australian Government’s overseas AID programme (AusAID), operated under a shared logical framework and was overseen by the United Nations Childrens Fund’s Eastern and Southern Africa regional office (UNICEF ESARO). The programme supported initiatives and interventions that respond to the needs of children affected by HIV and AIDS in nine different countries in the Eastern and Southern Africa region, including Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland and Tanzania. more
