Short Course in HIV Wellness - Contact Tuition

Interests:


Introduction

The availability of antiviral therapy (ARV therapy) means that most people who are HIV positive should not become too ill to work. However, if HIV does become symptomatic (i.e. the person starts experiencing related infections) it may be helpful to disclose HIV status as the person may require time off work due to illness or may require certain adjustments to be made to their job role, hours of work, etc. in order to allow them to continue working.

From an employer’s perspective, the most important thing is to ensure that a person with HIV is not discriminated against in the workplace. People living with HIV are legally protected from discrimination in the workplace and during recruitment.
