Positve working

In general, people with HIV can function normally in the labour market. The last few years have seen rapid strides in the treatment of HIV infection. New possibilities for treatment have had a positive influence on lifespan and thepositive working quality of life. This has consequences on the possibilities for work.

Today, employees with HIV need not be excluded from working. In fact, staying in work is the objective and stopping work has become the exception. Company doctors and insurance medical offi cers play an active role by ‘safeguarding work’ of employees with HIV.

In the brochure Positive working (summary) information is provided for people with HIV and employers (pdf.)
