The HIV/AIDS Awareness course covers a comprehensive range of topics on HIV/AIDS in the workplace.
Research shows that only a very small percentage of employers educate their staff around HIV/AIDS. The impact of HIV/AIDS and other chronic diseases is being felt in the country as a whole, and the workplace is no exception. With infection rates still on the increase, businesses must be prepared to deal effectively with HIV/AIDS so as to maintain high levels of production whilst avoiding discrimination of those infected or affected.
Employers should ensure that selected staff are properly trained in how to handle employees who may be involved in an accident causing bleeding. It is essential that the first-aid staff know how to handle such situations to minimise the chances of infection to other people.
