The International Labour Organization (ILO) promotes decent work conditions and productive employment for all, based on principles of social justice and non-discrimination. The contribution of the International Labour Organization (ILO) to the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) includes: tripartite membership, encouraging governments, employers and workers to mobilize against AIDS; direct access to the workplace; long experience in framing international standards to protect the rights of workers; and a global technical cooperation programme. The ILO has produced a Code of Practice on HIV/AIDS and the world of work – an international guideline for developing national and workplace policies and programmes.
