Original Title: Working With Hiv AidsHIV/AIDS affects every walk of life, and has a profound influence on everything we do -- in our closest relationships, at work, at home, at school, college or university. Not a day goes by without a reference to the pandemic in newspapers or on the electronic media. Just as the virus infects the body and every cell in the body, so it affects every single person living on the planet. This book addresses various issues around HIV/AIDS, what it is, how it is spread, what can be done to avoid becoming HIV positive and how to live positively once someone is infected, all discussed in the context of the workplace. "Working with HIV/AIDS" has been developed around the SAQA Fundamental Unit Standard 13915 (Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of HIV/AIDS in a workplace, and its effects on a business sub-sector, own organisation and a specific workplace) for use on NQF level 3. In-line with the unit standard requirements, the book includes a variety of formative assessment activities, using individual, pair and group work assignments, that should appeal to a wide range of learners or readers, as well as actual case studies, fact boxes, other useful and up-to-date information and glossary terms. The book should appeal to a wide audience, from learners at schools and tertiary institutions to members of the general public.
