In November 2009, SWHAP was launched in Namibia. The companies participating in the programme are Atlas Copco, Auto Sueco and Scania Truck Namibia. The three partners have sensitised management, trained Peer Educators as well as committees and developed workplace policies. They also network on a local level and participate in wider SWHAP network conferences. All the partners have arranged for workplace HIV Counselling and Testing (HCT) with one partner recording 100% HCT uptake. Post-test support is offered to affected employees.
