Commitment by

Levi Strauss & Co

In 2006, Levi Strauss & Co. committed to create the Levi Strauss & Co. Employee HIV/AIDS Program to provide all of its employees and their families with access to antiretroviral treatment/drugs, HIV/AIDS counseling, preventive care and education in more than 40 countries where the company operates.
To date, the program is active in every region where the company operates and has enrolled more than 3,000 retail, factory, warehouse, and office employees and managers. All LS&Co. factory employees have received HIV/AIDS education and have access to HIV/AIDS services. LS&Co. also ensures that employees and dependants in South Africa continue to receive lifesaving HIV/AIDS services and medication fully paid for by the company. In 2010, they executed their second annual voluntary counselling and testing campaign in South Africa, where more than 75 percent of their employees were tested - one of the highest participation rates nationwide.
