Polítca do HIV e SIDA no local de trabalho, para o sector de educação na África Austral

This policy is based on the ILO code of practice on HIV/AIDS and the world of work (hereafter, "the ILO code of practice"), adopted by an international tripartite meeting convened by the ILO in 2001, and includes key concepts and principles of the ILO code of practice. Development of the Policy has resulted from collaboration between ILO and UNESCO.The Policy was carefully reviewed and modified during a tripartite workshop held in Maputo, Mozambique, 30 November - 2 December 2005, composed of representatives from seven southern African countries. Participants at the workshop included representatives of Ministries of Education and Labour, teacher trade unions, private employers and National AIDS Councils/Commissions. The Policy is designed to be an additional contribution to the realization of the overall objectives of the Education for All (EFA) goals adopted in Dakar, Senegal in 2000.
