CDC’s Business Responds to AIDS, Labor Responds to AIDS Programs Launch Updated Web Site
The CDC's Business Responds to AIDS and Labor Responds to AIDS programs (BRTA/LRTA) have launched an updated Web site, http://www.hivatwork.org/, to assist both small and large businesses and labor unions in addressing HIV/AIDS in the workplace and the community. A manager's kit, which includes instructions on how to build comprehensive HIV/AIDS workplace programs, is available online in English and Spanish. The kit reviews the five components of the BRTA/LRTA programs and enables managers to develop HIV/AIDS policies for their workplaces; train other managers to conduct HIV/AIDS workshops; educate staff and employees' families about basic HIV/AIDS facts and its effect on the workplace; and promote community service and volunteerism. The BRTA/LRTA Web site also includes a labor leader's kit, instructions for educational role-playing, information on HIV/AIDS and the law and links to other resources (BRTA/LRTA Web site, 8/11).This is part of the KHN Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
