Companies cannot ignore HIV; it is a business issue demanding a response now and influencing longer term strategic planning. HIV infection among employees poses a significant threat to operational stability and future profitability. This study outlines how three major companies operating in South Africa have recognized both the challenges HIV poses and their moral duty of care, and have implemented programs to treat and care for employees and their families.
