HIV Workplace Programs Targeting Male Employees in Tanzania: Qualitative Research Findings

In Tanzania, HIV prevalence is more than twice as high among employed than unemployed males, and HIV positive men are less likely to know their status than HIV positive women. In 2008, Tanzania enacted an HIV and AIDS Prevention and Control Act, which mandates HIV workplace interventions. However, such interventions are not consistently implemented.

SHOPS Plus Tanzania conducted qualitative research with male employees from two corporate workplace partners and one association partner to understand experiences with and preferences for HIV workplace programs and to inform potential programs. The presentation shares study objectives, methods, and results on general health care seeking experiences, HIV perceptions and information sources, barriers and motivators to HIV testing, preferences for HIV testing and treatment, and opportunities for future HIV workplace programs.
