Description :

This fact sheet by the ILO speaks about the vulnerability of women to HIV infection, how women unequally bear the burden of HIV/AIDS and how this plays out in the workplace. It then illustrates the particular problems women face at work and suggests solutions to overcome these challenges. It proposes employment policies which should be adopted to address gender inequality in the context of HIV/AIDS.
