Much has been learned about the pandemic and how it should be addressed - and in particular that AIDS prevention and care are complex issues requiring a multi-sectoral approach. However, the full potential role of the world of work as a major venue for partnerships and interventions to prevent HIV/AIDS, protect workers and reduce its impact on business remains untapped. It is therefore the purpose of this paper to examine the social and labour implications of HIV/AIDS, as well as current practices and approaches to addressing the problem. Based on a preliminary assessment of impact, constraints and opportunities, the paper goes on to explore the policy and programme elements of an ILO response to the tragedy.
