On Wednesday, 28 November 2012 at 14h, Mr Guy Ryder, the ILO Director-General, Mrs Margaret Chan, the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), and the representative of the UNAIDS Executive Director have launched the "Getting to Zero at work" campaign.

As a co-sponsor of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), the International Labour Organization (ILO) contributes to the UNAIDS vision of "Zero new HIV infections. Zero discrimination. Zero AIDS-related deaths."

The HIV and AIDS Recommendation, 2010 (No. 200) provides sound guidance on addressing HIV through the promotion of human rights, job security and enhancing access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support services from a workplace perspective. ILO Recommendation No. 200 is at the heart of the ILO's strategy to "Getting to Zero at work".
