|The world of work is undergoing a major process of change. In order to understand and to respond effectively to these new challenges the International Labour Organization ILO has launched a “Future of Work initiative” in order to be able to advance its mandate for social justice. These challenges are not in isolation from others, such as the continued impact of non-communicable and communicable diseases, incl. HIV and TB.
The ILO is the only tripartite agency of the United Nations. Since 1919, the ILO brings together government, employer and worker representatives of 187 member States to set labour standards, develop policies and devise programmes promoting decent work for all. The ILO is one of the 11 UN-system organisations combining efforts and resources to implement a coherent HIV and AIDS response at global level, as co-sponsors of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS).
In South Africa, the ILO works with organised Business through Business Unity South Africa (BUSA) and other partners, such as the South African Business Coalition on Health and AIDS (SABCOHA).
Employee Assistance Programmes remain key as the world is fast-tracking the targets to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030. This should also be looked at in the context of the changes in the world of work – Future of Work
The need to coordinate the public and private sector in implementing Wellness and Disease Management Systems (WDMS – including HIV and TB) is becoming increasingly important.
