Tanzania Urges Employers, Workers to Set Aside HIV/AIDS Budget

December 27, 2001

Tanzanian Minister for Labor Juma Kapuya said at the recent International Labor Organization (ILO) meeting in Dar es Salaam that government ministries had set aside a budget to fight against HIV/AIDS and that both employers and employees should do the same. Reports have said more than 10 percent of the active labor force in Tanzania is HIV-positive, with life expectancy dropping from 52 to 47 years. Kapuya said the Tanzanian government had already declared HIV/AIDS a national disaster and that it poses a threat to the nation's productivity.
