Peer educator programme helps to prevent HIV/Aids
In Honduras, the work of Cervecería Hondureña in preventing HIV/Aids extends not only to employees but also to the community and those in the value chain.
The company has developed a peer educators programme which aims to raise awareness of HIV/Aids, reduce stigma and encourage voluntary testing.

By raising awareness, the programme benefits more than 3,000 employees of the company at its 14 locations along with their families, neighbours, friends and acquaintances.
