The issue of HIV/AIDS

We all know that the issue if HIV/Aids has become a major problem in all spheres of life. Fortunately the government has taken in its stride to try and make life easier for people who are affected and infected. He has however failed in many instances to try and provide people who are infected with ARV'S, http://lists.essential.org/pipermail/ip-health/2003-novemmber/005650.html . At the same time the Government has also been successful in implementing labour policies that protects employees who are infected by the virus.

The valuable lesson that I learnt from the presentation, is that South Africa has a long way to go when it comes to taking leadership and coming with policies that are consistent in tryong to combat the problem of HIV. I also realize that one has to become vigilant in order not to contract the virus, because in South Africa we are still dealing with the issue stigamatizing the virus, also not many hospitals especially, the ones in the rural areas have exparience in the rolling out of the ARV's.

One should also think of the future whereby one will be CEO of a company and alomst a quater of your staff is infected with virus, this means that one will be running his business on a loss. Many of your staff will be taking sick leave, and this means that one will have to hire out temporary workers who will repalce the sick staff. I think that This is one of many reasons why one has to take responsibilty when it comes to the issue of HIV/Aids.
