HIV/AIDS testing and awareness

Knowledge is essential when it comes to the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS. Our workplace HIV/AIDS program, StopAIDS, combines educational programs aimed at keeping healthy workers disease-free and helping HIV-positive workers live with the illness, with increased access to community-based care and treatment. In 2012, our Angolan affiliate, Esso Angola, held an HIV/AIDS counseling and testing campaign spearheaded by StopAIDS. In partnership with the Ministry of Health’s National Institute in the Fight Against AIDS and the Committee for Businesses in Fighting HIV/AIDS, Esso Angola held a two-day campaign that provided optional testing and counseling to more than 300 employees, including several education awareness sessions explaining the importance of knowing one’s HIV/AIDS status.
