AIDS Prevention Education with Migrant Construction Workers

Commitment by

Hindustan Construction Co. Ltd.

In 2006, the Hindustan Construction Company (HCC) in partnership with FXB International committed to launch a 'Workplace Intervention Programme' (WPI). The goal of this commitment is to achieve a significant increase in the level of employee awareness about HIV/AIDS issues. The program includes the creation of a local pool of resources: a trained group of Master Trainers and Peer Educators at each project site. Under the HIV/AIDS WPI Program model, the HCC conducts capacity-building and management-sensitization programs, enables workers to access STI and referral prevention services and creates a safe and productive work environment by reducing stigma & discrimination, myths and misconception.
