DRC: 3rd national Forum to mobilize the labour market for the fight against HIV and AIDS

From the 8 to 11 September 2015, the Third national Forum to mobilize the labour market for the fight against HIV and AIDS took place in the port town of Matadi in the Province of Congo Central, organized by the CIELS (Inter-enterprises Coalition for the Fight against HIV and AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria), in partnership with the national and provincial government, national disease programmes, multilateral international organizations and other financial and technical partners, amongst others Health Focus, a long-standing partner being active in the DRC since 2007.

The main topic of this year’s forum was the contribution of the world of work to the elimination of mother-to-child-transmission of HIV. In a special advocacy session addressed to leading company directors, moderated by the Minister of Health of the Province of Congo Central (ex Bas-Congo), Health Focus gave some valued input on the concept of Corporate Social Responsibility, especially in the context of fighting HIV and AIDS.
