Raising awareness of HIV/Aids
‘Makanudo’ is a wellness programme for all employees in Honduras. Recent activities have included an awareness-raising campaign highlighting the causes and prevention of HIV/Aids.
The programme has included regular employee workshops with educational materials provided to attendees. NGOs such as Hogar Renacer, a local charity which works with people at risk from HIV/Aids, and other associations working and caring for people affected by HIV/Aids, have participated in these workshops. The Honduran Ministry of Health is also a key partner in the awareness-raising campaign, providing guidance and assistance for the workshops.
We provide and promote voluntary testing for all employees and, if results return positive, those concerned receive assistance and confidential treatment. This includes counselling, treatment with IHSS, the Honduran social security institution, and options for economic assistance.
