I would like to present my course of HIV & AIDS in the Workplace to staff as it is still a considerable concern in the work environment.
Recent stats reported by the government beginning April 2014 stated that there were 400K registered new infections since 2012 and 6.4 million people are infected.
Those are the known persons and affects individuals from all walks of life, everyone is at risk.
Retain experienced workers by educating and avoiding the plunge into additional costs of training new people, their Health & Wellness should be your priority not just theirs.
If you would be so kind as to share the information with the relevant person/persons or point me in the right direction of who manages this form of training, I would appreciate immensely.
Upon completion of the programme, trained HIV & AIDS coordinators will be able to:
Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of HIV & AIDS in a workplace, and its effects on a business sub-sector, own organisation and a specific workplace.
This provides a broad introduction to HIV & AIDS in the workplace.
It introduces a broad case of knowledge about HIV & AIDS that will enable learners to be informed and caring towards workers in an industry.
The focus is knowledge, skills, values and attitudes in relation to the learner’s own context and experience of the world of work.
After completing the training programme the learner is capable of:
• Understanding the effects of HIV & AIDS on the immune system.
• Knowing how HIV & AIDS is transmitted.
