Additional Benefits and Support for Employees with AIDS-Related Conditions 2 P&G South Africa 2004 HIV/AIDS Report
A. Introduction
Worldwide, 40 million people are infected withHIV/AIDS. Africa has been hit hardest, with infectionrates in some African countries running as high as 40 percent of the population. AIDS has become theleading cause of death in sub-Saharan Africa, with more than 28 million people infected. The United Nations has recognized that HIV/AIDS is aglobal problem that must be fought. Hence one of itsMillennium Goals is to “combat HIV/AIDS, malaria, andother diseases.” The HIV/AIDS target is to halt and beginto reverse the spread of this disease by 2015. The UNhas pointed out that countries such as Brazil, Senegal,Thailand, and Uganda have shown that the spread ofHIV can be stemmed.
While HIV/AIDS has not had a significant impact onP&G’s global business, we know we need to be proactive. We have commitment from our CEO to playour part in combating the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Our vice president for sub-Saharan Africa is leading theCompany’s effort. He has implemented a program foremployees and their families which includes training,counseling, voluntary testing, and treatment. We areseeking ways to combine the distribution of AIDS drugswith our Safe Drinking Water Program, starting inUganda and Haiti. This will help prevent diseases associ-ated with unsafe water from impacting individuals withdepressed immune systems due to HIV. Finally, we havealso offered our management know-how and peopleresources to the U.S. government in South Africa to helpit deploy the $5 billion in aid promised by U.S. President,George W. Bush, to help combat this terrible disease. This report describes P&G’s South African HIV/AIDS poli-cy and program, using the Global Reporting InitiativeTMPilot Edition Resource Document.
