It was a great relief to read that we would probably be able to give a pretty good assessment of the progress and impact of the work we are doing. It all sounds a lot less daunting now.

Low Cost and Effective HIV and AIDS Workplace Responses: Experiences from Ethiopia, India and Uganda (Praxis Note 56)


(average rating from 1 users)

Fear of the financial cost often prevents organisations taking proactive steps to address HIV and AIDS in the workplace. Yet many responses do not require much investment. This paper describes four case studies of such low cost responses.

It shows that it is possible to respond effectively with limited extra financial outlay. It highlights the importance of:

  • Starting with what you have
  • Using existing resources for prevention activities
  • Referring to others for VCT and treatment
  • Raising extra funds for care yourselves.

Ultimately it is about proactively taking responsibility – as one NGO director said: ‘You cannot wait until someone else provides funding’.

  1. I strongly believe that this is the way to go. Working in the NGO sector for several years, support for program implementation is becoming a challenge and so is the support for staff costs. I also believe that the environment is becoming more supportive of some of the approaches being used here from the examples. It works very well if it does not stand alone.
