This fact sheet provides an overview of the different workplace barriers that often hinder an employee living with HIV/AIDS from working to his or her full potential. It also identifies facilitators that can help overcome these barriers, in an effort to help employers to retain qualified, experienced staff, and build a healthy, diverse and productive workplace. The content and recommendations within this fact sheet are based on a comprehensive scoping review of the evidence on HIV and labour force participation and consultations with PHAs, employers, insurers, and policy makers across Canada.
