The Program has recently received extensive promotion through airport dioramas, print advertisements, and a television public service announcement. The five components of the Business and Labor Respond to AIDS Program are workplace policy, employee education, manager/supervisor education, family education, and community volunteerism. To assist businesses and organizations with implement-ing these components, CDC developed the Manager's Kit and Labor Leader's Kit.
The Manager's Kit is a comprehensive guide to assist you in addressing HIV/AIDS in your organization. It includes sections on developing workplace policies, providing information for employees, and identifying additional resources. All of the materials in the kit are designed for employers, supervisors, and human re-sources staff. Some materials in the kit can be used for program development and planning while others are sample or ready-to-use employee education materials.
The Manager's Kit is available from the Business and Labor Resource Service (BLRS). The Service, operated by the Clearinghouse, links businesses, labor, and federal agencies with resources that provide assistance in developing workplace-based HIV/AIDS policies and education programs. The kits cost $25 each; call 1-800-458-5231 to order a copy. If you have questions about workplace-related HIV/AIDS issues, call BLRS at 1-800-458-5231.
