STRATEGIC HIV/AIDS INTERVENTIONS



Helping you respond to the challenge of HIV/AIDS...

Redpeg can proactively assess the potential impact of HIV/AIDS on your organisation – through workplace research – and advise on the development and implementation of a workplace HIV/AIDS strategy and policy. These interventions can help to:

  • Reduce the incidence of HIV among employees; 
  • Manage the impact of HIV positive employees on the bottom line; 
  • Ensure that appropriate HIV/AIDS-related programmes and policies are in place, i.e. able to avoid serious productivity losses and industrial relations disputes;
  • Understand the impact of HIV/AIDS on future human resources and skills related planning;
  • Ensure that all employees and management are appropriately trained; and
  • Locate the HIV/AIDS programme within the context the broader wellness programme.

...through comprehensive, strategic HIV/AIDS interventions

The following is an overview of our interventions, which include:

1. Workplace research

  • Economic Impact Studies

It’s increasingly recognised that the HIV/AIDS epidemic not only presents a human tragedy of unprecedented enormity, it is also having a profound effect on the economic health of many organisations. It’s important to obtain the best possible predictions about the likely impact of HIV/AIDS, as this allows organisations to develop and implement strategies to minimise the impact, to maintain longer-term viability and economic sustainability and to support the needs of employees living with HIV/AIDS.

Through the use of an organisation-customised economic impact model, Redpeg is able to predict the potential impact of HIV/AIDS, including the cost impact of HIV/AIDS on an organisation, the financial savings that could be achieved through different interventions, current and future employee prevalence rates, and more. Please see below for example outputs from our economic impact study:




 

  • Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices (KAP) Surveys

KAP surveys are used to assess the knowledge, attitudes and practices of employees with regards to HIV/AIDS. KAP survey results are used to establish employee vulnerability to HIV/AIDS and guide the development of a comprehensive organisational HIV/AIDS strategy.

Redpeg uses an electronic survey instrument that not only provides accurate results it significantly reduces the turnaround time for the delivery of survey results. Our interactive employee response system facilitates easy participation in surveys and allows for the active engagement of employees. Once the survey is complete, the Redpeg team analyses the survey results and provides feedback in the form of a comprehensive survey report. The pictures below are example screenshots from our electronic survey questionnaire:
