HIV/AIDS workplace policy coming
By Margaret Kalekye/KNA ( Wednesday, March 02, 2005)
The Government is currently developing a HIV/Aids Workplace Policy
for the Public Sector.
A Senior Assistant Director Directorate of Personnel Management
Mrs. Mary Baaro, says the disease and subsequent deaths of public
servants resulting from HIV/Aids has impacted negatively on the
National Gross Domestic Product.
Mrs Baaro was speaking in Kisumu when she led members of her task
force to meet various provincial heads.
She said the task force was out to collect views from stakeholders
countrywide on the draft policy.
She said the policy aims at addressing the fundamental rights at
work, particularly discrimination and stigmatization of workers
and people living with the scourge.
