Abstract

"These guidelines are intended for governments, public and private employers, workers and their representatives, professional associations, scientific and academic institutions, and all other groups and bodies with responsibilities and activities relevant to the delivery of health care. They are designed as a basis for practical policy and as a technical reference that can be used by - or adapted to the needs and capacities of - large, medium-sized or small health-service structures. The guidelines cover legislation, policy development, labour relations, occupational safety and health, and other technical subjects. They discuss the basis for action, identify roles and responsibilities, set out the key policies and actions needed for sound management of HIV/AIDS in health services, and include core references in each section. In addition, practical information on the most relevant technical aspects of occupational safety and health is provided in the form of concise fact sheets adapted from a range of reliable international and national sources."
