Public Notice

The Ministry of Labour and Social Security (MLSS) with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is in the process of completing final stakeholder consultations on the National HIV Workplace Policy.

The National Workplace Policy on HIV/AIDS is a framework for action by government, employers and workers to deal effectively with HIV/AIDS at the workplace. The policy takes into consideration the effects of HIV/AIDS on the most productive segment of the workforce and as such, views the problems associated with HIV/AIDS in terms of the significant negative implications they hold for production and national development.

The public is being invited to read the Policy Document and submit their comments via email to jamaicanwp@gmail.com by Thursday June 30, 2011. For more information please contact:
