In 2002, the Human Science Research Concil was commisioned by the WK Kellog Foundation to develop and implement a five-year intervention project focusing on orphans and vulnerable chidren (OVC) in southern Africa. In collaboration with several partner organisations, the project currently focuses on how children, families in Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe are coping with the impact of HIV/AIDS. The aim of the project is to develop models of best practise so as to enhance and improve support structures for OVC in the southern African region as a whole.

This report forms part of a series that examines the work undertaken as part of the Kellog OVC Intervention Project from 2002 - 2005

Workplace Policies in Public Education
A review focusing on HIV/AIDS

2086

Policy governs many aspects of the professional lives of educators. It is also central to their and the sector's response to crises such as the HIV/AIDS epidemic. As such policy can contribute directly to curtailing the attrition of educators, by encouraging and providing protection against threats such as HIV/AIDS, and by creating a positive and supportive working environment. This study examines workplace and HIV/AIDS policies from the Department of Education (DoE) and the HIV/AIDS policies of two trade unions, as part of a broader study looking at the attrition of educators. The policies themselves were found to be well written and if implemented, would create a good environment for educators. A number of successes were noted, particularly in terms of the transformation of education structures. The findings suggest that problems are centered on a lack of policy implementation, resulting from disjunctures between the national office and provincial and district offices, as well as a lack of resources and inadequate planning and preparation for implementation.
