The International Labour Organization (ILO) is the specialized United Nations agency responsible for the world of work. It is devoted to promoting social justice and internationally recognized human and labour rights, and to pursuing its founding mission that social justice is essential for universal and lasting peace. Its mandate is to promote decent work for all workers, regardless of where they work.

As a cosponsor of UNAIDS, ILO is the lead agency on HIV workplace policies and programmes, as well as private sector mobilization. ILO recognizes that HIV has a potentially devastating impact on labour and productivity and represents an enormous burden for working people and their families. Within the context of HIV, the ILO thus supports member states to scale up comprehensive HIV programmes that address prevention, treatment, care, and support through a wide range of actions and across several development areas. The organization has been involved in the HIV response since 1998.

The updated ILO Strategy on HIV and AIDS—ILO’s response to HIV and AIDS: Accelerating progress for 2030—was adopted by the ILO governing body in 2019, embracing a twin-track approach which synergistically combines HIV-specific actions with HIV integration into the broader development mandate of the ILO. The Strategy commits to promote HIV integration across the wider scope of the ILO’s work with special emphasis on areas such as social protection, multi-disease HIV testing, labour standards, labour migration, gender equality, occupational safety and health, wellness workplace programmes, LGBTI+ issues and ILO training courses among others. Through the crosscutting nature of outcome six of the ILO Programme and Budget 2020–2021 on gender equality and equal opportunities and treatment for all in the world of work HIV is integrated into other outcomes.
