The Swedish Workplace HIV/AIDS Programme (SWHAP) supports over 100 workplace programmes on HIV in twelve countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. The programme contributes to the response to HIV and AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa. It was jointly initiated in 2004 by the International Council of Swedish Industry (NIR) and the Industrial and Metal Workers’ Union of Sweden (IF Metall). The main aim of SWHAP is to support companies and employees to prevent further spread of HIV and reduce the effects of the pandemic at Swedish related workplaces. SWHAP presently operates in Botswana, The Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. It is co-financed by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, Sida, and the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation, Norad.
