Aids Awareness (Half-Day) Email Print

Aim/Intro

This workshop is for all staff. With South Africa still rated the country with the highest number of new HIV infections (2012) the business sector simply has to step up our efforts to curb this increase. From a purely financial perspective, skills shortage and succession planning viewpoint it would be downright negligent not to do so. From a social responsibility viewpoint it will be the morally sound decision to take. Fortunately there are many organisations, unions and industries who are seeking to incorporate AIDS training as part of their employee wellness programmes.

More on this workshop

"Do what you can, with what you have, where you are." ~ Theodore Roosevelt

The lions share of Aids treatment funding for Africa comes from the United States (PEPFAIR) and the Global Fund.

In 2011 the latter cancelled its next round of funding proposals due to lack of finance. South Africans have to take ownership of this disease if we do not want it to deplete our economy.

HIV/AIDS has created a new challenge and a new dimension in the workplace, not only from the perspective of how to treat the illness and how to support an individual who is HIV positive, but this disease is also responsible for the existing condition (2012) of 100 000 child headed households in our country. These sometimes rudderless children grow up to become our workforce and a huge management challenge.



This is a ½ day seminar.
