According to the 2006 National HIV sentinel survey, Namibia has an HIV prevalence rate of 19.9% thus calling for all sectors, including NANTU as the main player in education sector (which is social transformation tool), to mainstream HIV and AIDS into all strategies and programs to address and mitigate the impact of HIV and AIDS in society. This policy seeks to provide a supportive environment to minimize the social, economic and developmental consequences of HIV and AIDS on the NANTU members and employees, and is committed to addressing HIV and AIDS in a positive, supportive and non-discriminatory manner so that people infected and affected by HIV and AIDS continue to enjoy equal rights through respect and protection.
