This fact sheet provides an overview of the different barriers that often hinder a person living with HIV/AIDS (PHA) from entering or remaining in the labour force. It also identifies facilitators that can help overcome these barriers, in an effort to help policy-makers at all levels to better identify and understand the gaps in relevant legislation and policy. 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.
