Global Inequalities at Work




Oxford University Press

Biological and social exposures at work can have as important an impact on individual health as physical and chemical ones; HIV/AIDS is a prime example of this. This chapter begins by exploring the bidirectional relationship between HIV/AIDS and the workplace. In the second section, through an international review of existing social policy and research, the chapter outlines what has already been done to address the relationship between HIV/AIDS and the workplace, concluding that most current efforts have been inadequate. Next, the findings of the book's research team's study of the impact of social conditions on the relationship between work and health in Botswana are presented. Finally, the chapter offers program and policy recommendations.
