Workshop by Sri Lanka Business Coalition on HIV/AIDS

The Sri Lanka Business Coalition on HIV/AIDS (SLBCH) recently concluded an HIV/AIDS awareness programme for companies aimed at increasing awareness of the HIV virus as well as reduce the stigma and discrimination towards those living with the disease.

Two of the awareness sessions that were conducted were for BASF Finlays and Dipped Products, both members of the coalition, according to a press release by Standard Chartered Bank which initiated the coalition.

Trainers were provided by Standard Chartered Bank’s HIV Champion pool of trainers, who are part of the Bank’s extensive and internationally recognized Living with HIV Program.

“The importance of basic awareness that is essential to us as an organization in Sri Lanka was reinforced by the trainers in their awareness training session. We all have a responsibility at every level to prepare our county and our employees to protect against this threat,” said Amal Perera, Managing Director, BASF Finlays.
