HIV management checklist: 11 points you need to remember when creating an HIV management system

by , 01 December 2014
Protecting your employees from HIV seems like a daunting task. After all, their behaviour outside of work puts them at risk as much their actions at work.

So how do you create a system that protects your employees from HIV no matter where they are?

It's actually easier than it seems. All you have to do is create a well constructed HIV management system.

But because this system covers several different areas, there are a few things you need to remember.

Today I'm going to tell you 11 important points you need to think about when you create your HIV management system so you can effectively protect your employees...

Consider these 11 important points when you create your HIV management system

 
Your HIV management system consists of four main parts:
 
1.       Training;
2.       Health care;
3.       Prevention; and
4.       Community involvement.
 
Within each of these four parts, there are a number of points you need to think about and include. They are:
 
  1. Do your first aiders know how to protect themselves when dealing with injuries? (Training)
  2. What information do your employees need to protect themselves? (Training)
  3. How will you create HIV awareness in your company? (Training)
  4. What will you do to reduce HIV stigma in your company. (Training)
  5. If you have employees taking ARVs, how will it affect them? (Health care)
  6. How will you reasonably accommodate an employee who's HIV+? (Health care)
  7. How will you encourage employees to undergo voluntary HIV testing and counseling? (Health care)
  8. What information do you need to determine your HIV infection risk? (Prevention)
  9. What protective equipment can your employees use to protect themselves if they help someone with an injury? (Prevention)
  10. Which employees are at risk? (Prevention)
  11. How can you implement a community outreach programme to support your HIV management? (Community involvement)

Consider these 11 points so your HIV management system covers all the bases.
