Tanzania Commission for AIDS (TACAIDS) conducted a seminar for NACTE employees on HIV/AIDS, The main issues of the seminar included, awareness, prevention, voluntary testing and the importance of understanding one’s health status. The seminar also emphasized on importance of checking health status for HIV&AIDS and other non-communicable diseases like Cancer, diabetes etc... Further, the employees were advised to monitor their body weight regularly and lead healthy life, such as eating healthy diet/meals while avoiding unhealthy life styles.
This initiative has been brought about, as a response towards implementing the revised National HIV&AIDS Management at Workplace Circular No. 2 of 2006, which instructs Employers in Public Service to provide council service and advice, avoidance of stigma and discrimination to civil servants living with HIV and AIDS.
The Circular requires all Employers to adhere to the guideline, and maintain welfare of the employees through provision of regular updates regarding health issues, use of protective measures and provide direct support to employees who disclose their health status.
