Prevention of Human Immunodeficiency
Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome
(AIDS) in the workplace has become a global issue.
Various regulations and policies on this matter both
international conventions and national policies. Based
on these policies in addition to human rights reasons,
spurred several companies such as in South Africa, the
United States, including Indonesia, to formulate a policy
on HIV and AIDS prevention and control in the
Policy formulation in several other countries and
Indonesia is actually no different in accessing HIV and
AIDS services because all countries prioritize the
principle of confidentiality and volunteerism. In
addition, the country, including Indonesia, is also
committed to eliminating stigma and discrimination
against people with HIV and AIDS. However, it clearly
seems different in implementing other countries'
policies and Indonesian government policies in the
workplace such as companies.
Companies in other countries such as Africa and
America are trying to perfect government policies in the
prevention and control of HIV and AIDS in the
workplace. They implement it comprehensively through
promotive, preventive, curative, and rehabilitative
efforts. While companies in Indonesia are still more
oriented towards promotive aspects without maximizing
other health efforts.
