Tourism group develops AIDS policy

From NANCY MWAPE in Livingstone
THE Livingstone Tourism Association (LTA) has developed a draft HIV and AIDS workplace policy to help fight the pandemic.
LTA vice-president Thomas Banda said tourism is one of the key drivers of the economy.
The tourism industry is important for Livingstone because it is the pillar for development and improvement of people’s livelihood.
He said this in Livingstone on Friday during the close of an HIV and AIDS policy stakeholder validation meeting.
“For Livingstone, this policy is very critical given that the tourist capital has the highest HIV and AIDS prevalence in the country. The HIV and AIDS workplace policy will be launched this October,” Mr Banda said.
The private sector contributes to Government’s efforts in addressing issues of health in relation to HIV and AIDS.
LTA has developed a clear road map towards the finalisation and launch of the HIV and AIDS and wellness  to be launched this October.
Mr Banda said the policy for LTA has been validated and endorsed by stakeholders.
