AFRO-NETS> Call for Papers: HIV/AIDS in the Workplace


 
Call for Papers: HIV/AIDS in the Workplace
------------------------------------------
 
Research Symposium, Wits University, South Africa
29th and 30th June 2004
 
An interdisciplinary initiative organised by members of the 
Schools of Business, Economics, Law, Public Health and Social 
Sciences of the University of the Witwatersrand.
 
The symposium aims to provide an opportunity for researchers from 
all academic disciplines to present and cross-fertilize their 
work on HIV/AIDS in the workplace. Open and accessible debate on 
HIV/AIDS in the workplace is important in a context where there 
are limited public fora to discuss these issues with rigor and 
freedom of expression.
 
Symposium themes
 
Five themes have been selected for the Symposium. The aim of 
these themes is to encourage and promote applied or practical re-
search.
 
1. All together? Exploring tensions, contradictions and opportu-
   nities around HIV/AIDS programmes in the workplace
2. Projections vs. Reality: The real impact of HIV/AIDS in the
   workplace
3. Workplace programmes in the era of treatment: What is best
   practice?
4. HIV/AIDS and the 'atypical' workplace
5. Workplace and society: Are there boundaries in responding to
   HIV/AIDS at work?
