    PROCARE offers sustainable and integrated HIV/AIDS services to our clients

    The International Labour Organisation's (ILO) places South Africa's HIV/AIDS prevalence rate at 21.5% and states that the costs to the economy were mainly due to workforce deaths and labour absenteeism. In addition, HIV poses a huge threat to companies' markets, both in terms of future customers and the societies in which companies operate, source labour and seek investors and shareholders.

    Research conducted by the Bureau for Economic Research on behalf of the South African Business Coalition on HIV/AIDS, showed that almost 33% of the 1006 companies surveyed said that their profitability have been negatively affected. This research also showed that HIV/AIDS had the most impact on the manufacturing sector, while the retail sector has seen less of an impact. More than 40% of companies in Gauteng reported lower labour productivity and increased absenteeism due to HIV/AIDS, STIs and TB (HAST).
    The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that 40-50% of the current South African workforce will die of AIDS within the next ten years. It is therefore crucial that all role-players develop a strategic response, intensive planning and immediate actions and collaborations to minimise the impact on companies and the economy.

    PROCARE offers sustainable and integrated HIV/AIDS, STIs and TB (HAST) services to Companies/Organisations and Educational Institutions and other Work Groups.
