Tackling HIV/Aids in the value chain

Row of people on bicycles

The Nile Breweries Ltd (NBL) HIV/Aids programme in Uganda includes employees, sorghum farmers, the local community, truck drivers and retailers. So far more than 4,800 people have been trained by peer educators and 29% of these people have been through voluntary counselling and testing (VCT). During 2008, 10,000 condoms were distributed to our supply chain.

NBL has also provided training in home-based care to those looking after HIV/Aids patients as well as psycho-social and material support to HIV/Aids orphans and vulnerable children. At present, 99% of HIV-positive employees are on managed healthcare programmes. Since 2007, 248 NBL third-party truck drivers have been trained in HIV/Aids awareness and more than 50% of these reported for VCT at the NBL clinic. In the retail and service trade, 800 workers from across Uganda have taken part in HIV/Aids awareness-raising activities.

NBL’s HIV/Aids programme was recognised when the company received the Best Corporate Citizen – Corporate Social Responsibility award at the 2008 Investor of the Year Awards organised by the Uganda Investment Authority.
