The program firstly provides hand tailor-made HIV/AIDS prevention and awareness programs in the local operations, including Voluntary Counselling and Testing. Secondly, it provides all employees and their dependants access to free confidential and high quality care and treatment through the company-wide Health Insurance.
The implementation of the program follows a structured approach and includes:
Review of medical infrastructure, company culture and government response, resulting in country specific cost estimations and project plans.
Training of medical staff, contracting clinics for provision of treatment, contracting third party administrators for confidential administration of medical costs, a comprehensive risk assessment including HIV/AIDS prevalence testing, a Knowledge, Attitudes, Practise and Behaviour survey (KAPB), Focus Group Discussions, assessment and selection of local prevention partners and the starting of local prevention and awareness programs.
3. Continued program management support
Support includes the implementation of financial and medical audits to guarantee continuous provision of quality and confidential HIV/AIDS treatment and annual program management workshops.
