HIV Unit


As the implementing vehicle for the National Workplace Policy on HIV and AIDS, the HIV Unit within the Occupational Safety and Health Department is mandated to reduce stigma and discrimination against persons living with and affected by HIV in the workplace.

This is achieved by the provision of a responsive legal redress framework, which is both accessible and ensures confidentiality in treating with HIV-related discrimination in the workplace.


Under the HIV component of the Ministry’s Voluntary Compliance Programme, the Unit assists organizations with the tailoring of their HIV Workplace Polices and Programmes. This in turn assists organizations with fulfilling the requirements of the pending Occupational Safety and Health Act including subject specific regulations.
