AIDS Competence in the Workplace ACORD and CONCERN Experiences in Uganda Adapting Internal Systems, Policies, Structures and Resources to respond to the challenges posed by HIV/AIDS

This report provides several interesting findings on the experiences of ACORD and CONCERN - Uganda with regard to the mainstreaming of HIV/AIDS at the workplace. This document can serve as a reference point for organizations intending to mainstream HIV/AIDS. It should be noted that many organizations in the country have not developed workplace policies due to limited knowledge of the critical ingredients and salient principles underlying a comprehensive HIV/AIDS Workplace Policy. The aim of the study was to review the global and national HIV/AIDS situation and the internal mainstreaming experiences, but also to develop and understand internal mainstreaming at different levels and contribute to global learning.
