Creating an HIV management system for your company? These four case studies will show you how

by , 26 November 2014
The most recent HIV statistics for South Africa show that at least 14% of working South Africans are HIV+. So what does that means for your business?

For a start, it means there's a chance that almost a seventh of your employees have this deadly disease.

With a possible HIV risk like that in your company, it's imperative that you take steps to protect your employees against the spread of the HIV. That requires an HIV management system. But because there are so many different components in this kind of system, it can get a little complicated.

That's why today, we have four case studies that show what big name companies did to successfully protect their employees from HIV.

Read on to find out how they handled this deadly disease in their workplaces so you can too...

 

Four HIV management system examples that could help you protect your employees

 
Managing HIV in the workplace requires constant commitment and input. You can't just create a system and leave it to run itself after the initial setup.
 
That's where these four companies got their HIV management systems right. They put in the effort to create an effective system that they could easily continue to run after setting it up.
 
These are the four companies:
 
Case Study 1: Eskom
 
Eskom created an HIV management system that focused around four key areas. To help it cover training, prevention and internal management.

Case Study 2: Sasol
 
Sasol based its HIV management system on communication with particular key role players. This communication enabled it to get greater buy in from management and employees and, as a result, they achieved an 81% uptake rate.

Case Study 3: De Beers
 
De Beers included a voluntary HIV counselling and testing (VCT) programme in its HIV management system. This helped it create awareness around HIV in its mines. Because more employees knew their HIV status thanks to this programme, they managed to achieve a prevalence average of only 10.2% which is 8.2% lower than the national average.

Case Study 4: Standard Bank
 
Standard Bank based its HIV management programme on particular questions. By answering these questions it created an HIV management programme that focused on VCT, prevalence statistics for future use and maintaining employee enthusiasm.
