The Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF), in partnership with Singapore’s Health Promotion Board, is calling for workforces in Singapore to help achieve zero discrimination, zero HIV infections, and zero AIDS-related deaths in Singapore.

Here’s how you can play a part:

Develop your workforce’s knowledge and skills

Start by providing HIV prevention education as part of your workplace health initiatives. This will help to address misconceptions around the subject of HIV, as well as encourage early HIV testing and treatment.

Build a supportive workplace environment

A supportive environment can create a culture of empowerment, trust, care, respect, and shared beliefs among employees. This can positively impact employees living with HIV.

Enhance workplace policies

Have clearly stated policies on maintaining confidentiality of medical information and non-tolerance of discriminatory behaviour. Demonstrate commitment to eliminate prejudice and stigma towards employees living with HIV.

Show your support to the workforce. Encourage early testing and treatment at your workplace.
