Employers can play a pivotal role in combating stigma and prejudice associated with HIV in Singapore. While prevention is still better than cure, the eradication of these negative attitudes can pave the way for early detection and treatment, ultimately curbing the spread of HIV within our community.
Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) has developed several initiatives such as talks and workshops on preventing the spread of infectious diseases in the workplace, with various partners like Health Promotion Board (HPB). We are delighted to offer these initiatives for free to all employers in Singapore.
What steps can employers take?
Our three-tier approach simplifies HIV/AIDS education and management in the workplace, while also proactively addressing any potential stigmatisation through recommended adjustments in HR management and policies.
To guide your efforts, we invite you to refer to the updated HIV Implementation Guide.
This comprehensive resource offers valuable insights on developing and implementing practices for HIV prevention and management within workplaces.
By pledging your support, your workplace becomes a beacon of inclusivity and responsible employment practices. Your endorsement would also inspire others to join the cause and demonstrate their support.
Let's work together to build a more inclusive, understanding, and stigma-free Singapore. Together, we can create workplaces where every individual is valued, respected, and supported.
