The ILO is the specialized United Nations agency responsible for the world of work. Its aims are to promote rights at work, encourage employment opportunities, enhance social protection, and strengthen social dialogue on work-related issues. 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 labor and productivity and represents an enormous burden for working people and their families. The organization has been involved in the HIV response since 1998.


In 2018 ILO built upon work undertaken during the previous two years. The work of ILO around HIV is framed and guided by the ILO Programme and Budget 2018–2019, the ILO 2010 recommendation no. 200 concerning HIV and AIDS, the UNAIDS Strategy 2016–2021, UBRAF 2016–2021, and the United Nations 2016 Political Declaration on HIV and AIDS. The UNAIDS Strategy 2016–2021 explicitly includes a target to reduce discrimination in workplace settings (target 8) and promotes actions aligned to the ILO mandate, such as inclusive national HIV-sensitive social protection; access to HIV services for migrants, including labour migrants; combination prevention programmes for women and young women; and gender equality. The 2016 Political Declaration makes specific reference to the principles of the ILO 2010 recommendation no. 200 concerning HIV.
