Clearly, employment is an essential part of leading an independent, self-directed life for all people, including people living with HIV/AIDS. Reflecting this, the U.S. Department of Labor, through its Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) works to improve employment opportunities and outcomes and reduce stigma and discrimination for people living with HIV/AIDS.
The Employment and Living with HIV/AIDS Toolkit furthers this goal by outlining strategies and resources for:
- The many thousands of people living with HIV/AIDS in the U.S. who need and want to consider, enter or change employment.
- Employers who want to use best practices as they maximize opportunities for hiring and retaining people living with HIV/AIDS and people with other disabilities.
- Service providers and other professionals in HIV/AIDS organizations and workforce development and vocational rehabilitation agencies who can assist both people living with HIV/AIDS in obtaining and maintaining employment and employers in understanding how to create a work environment welcoming of their skills and talents.
