The Health Policy Project has ended, but work continues under a new USAID five-year project, Health Policy Plus (HP+).
Software and Models
Workplace Policy Builder (WPB) is designed to help companies develop their own HIV/AIDS policies through a participatory process. The WPB guides the user through the step-by-step process of developing a policy and includes a number of resources: a database of corporate workplace policies from around the world, a literature database of the impact of HIV/AIDS, national HIV/AIDS policies, international standards, the AIM-B model, and a component for assessing the cost of any proposed program.
For more information on the WPB, read the fact sheet (link below).
The software has already been used in conjunction with workshops facilitated by Futures Group to develop workplace policies in Lesotho, Kenya, Namibia, Mozambique, and Mexico. Those interested in working through the policy development process with the help of Futures Group should contact Margaret Reeves (firstname.lastname@example.org).
You can download the software using the links below. The zip file is provided for those who cannot download an executable file.
