Swedish Workplace HIV and AIDS Programme (SWHAP)

At the end of 2013 SWHAP commissioned a short film documenting its work in Sub-Sahara Africa. The film sought to capture the diversity of workplace programmes, the benefits of these programmes and the partnerships between unions and management working together to address HIV and wellness in their workplaces and communities. Filming took place over three months, in three countries and at eight workplaces. Participating companies in Zambia included, Sandvik, Atlas Copco, Mulonga Water and Sewerage Company and Panorama; in Tanzania, Sandvik, Scania and Agro EcoEnergy; ABB, South Africa; and Scania, Botswana.

The Swedish Workplace HIV and AIDS Programme (SWHAP) is a joint initiative by the International Council of Swedish Industry (NIR) and the Swedish Industrial and Metal Workers' Union (IF Metall). It is a long-term strategy to contribute to the establishment and/or support of HIV and wellness programmes at Swedish-related companies in sub-Saharan Africa. SWHAP is an example of how management, employees and trade unions can contribute to a successful intervention that saves lives and secures future markets. Since 2004, this programme has been helping companies invest in workplace programmes that reverse the negative impact of HIV and AIDS. For more information visit www.swhap.org
