Concerning the All-Russian action "STOP HIV/AIDS"
From May 14 to May 19 the sixth All-Russian action "Stop HIV/AIDS" is to be carried out. Actions within the share will take place to the following main directions:
- "Week of knowledge of HIV",
- "Week of testing for HIV",
- "Week of active actions against HIV".
According to the opinion of the International Labor Organization, the increased detectability of new cases of HIV infection requires enhanced attention and implementing further measures at preventing its spread among the adult working population.
In this regard, it is necessary to conduct explanatory work on the issue of prevention and treatment of HIV infections, including informing workers and employers on this issue, since conducting such work in the labor force contributes to raising the awareness of citizens and knowledge about their rights, including confidentiality and protection from discrimination.
Following the results of a meeting with heads of State Labor Inspection, the decision to bring information on the All-Russian action "Stop HIV/AIDS" to workers and employers of the regions, and also to recommend to them to support the action, to take active part in it and to organize free testing of the workers for HIV infection was made.
