Sustainable Development - HIV/AIDS Community Involvement

We have a strong commitment to the fight against HIV/AIDS not only in our workforce, but also in the communities around us. This encompasses involvement with a variety of social outreach programmes, such as assisting other organisations implement workplace programmes and Academy managers on aspects of HIV/AIDS in the workplace. We are also involved with the financial support of a variety of HIV/AIDS initiatives.

Within communities our practical contribution to preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS includes batch-testing the equivalent of 450 million condoms on behalf of the Department of Health. SABS has also published SANS 16001: HIV and Aids Management Systems - General Requirements in 2007.
