dc.description.abstract In this minithesis, I explore the impact of the well addressed comprehensive HIV/AIDS workplace policy in the effective management of the spread of HIV/AIDS in Mdantsane high schools. The research conveniently made use of six Mdantsane high schools in analysing their HIV/AIDS workplace policies. In the study I critically assess and analyse the contents of the policies, whether they adhere to the International Labour Organisations (ILO) key areas for a workplace policy, as well as to the National HIV/AIDS Workplace Policy for Institutions and Schools. I establish the importance of a workplace policy in providing the framework for action to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS and managing its impact. I then argue that the positive difference in the effectiveness of an HIV/AIDS policy depends on the programmes encompassed in it, like protection of rights of employees affected by HIV/AIDS, prevention through information, education and training as well as care and support for workers and their families. en
