Supported by Existing Guidelines:

ILO/WHO guidelines on health services and HIV/AIDS, 2005- Peer education, health and safety committees:

  • 81. Training materials should be based on validated information and methodologies that are accepted at the national level by regulators and specialists. Health-care workers with proven skills and experience are often the best trainers, and peer education is therefore recommended at all levels, together with a participatory methodology. A list of the key elements to be included in information, education and training programmes for health-care workers is provided in Fact Sheet No. 11. Other specific areas for training are also identified in paragraphs 20(d) (Role of employers' and workers' organizations), 24 (Recognition of HIV as a workplace issue), 26(c) (Stigma and discrimination in the health sector), 28 (Gender: Issues for women and men), 31 (Social dialogue), 38 (Risk management), 39 (Hazard identification), 41(f) (Risk control), 57 (Exposure response system).
