This study aims to examine the range of impacts the HIV/AIDS pandemic has had on selected NGO partners of Oxfam operating in South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe, and to make recommendations useful to NGOs, including Oxfam, donors, and policy-makers based on its results.
Managing HIV/AIDS in the Workplace. Examples of nine Non-Governmental Organisations in South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe is commissioned by Novib/Oxfam Netherlands and seeks to capture the experiences and lessons of implementing HIV mainstreaming internally , within the context of Oxfam's non-governmental organisation (NGO) partner workplaces in southern Africa. The study highlights the development, implementation, and monitoring of HIV/AIDS policy and the impact of the HIV/AIDS epidemic on nine NGOs in South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe, and the response of these organisations to the pandemic. Their experiences emphasise a range of issues that organisations have to address and provide practical suggestions on what constitutes good practice in response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic in the region. The specific objectives of the study were to: 1) Undertake an institutional assessment of the selected Oxfam NGO partners on the challenges posed by HIV/AIDS to the staff and overall business of the organisation, including recognition and incorporation of gender disparities; and to 2) document the experiences from the visits, outlining the challenges, lessons learned, successes, and gaps to date. The study was designed to be participatory and to promote linkages between and organisational learning within the NGO participants. It used a two-fold methodology.
