Policy on Gender Equality

Noolaham Foundation believes that gender equality is central to achieving the objectives of Noolaham Foundation. Gender inequity varies in its expression from place to place, but in all communities where Noolaham Foundation works, we encounter some form of gender-based discrimination, gender stereotyping and an unequal distribution of power between women and men, girls and boys. Noolaham Foundation’s commitment to gender equality is based on the international standards established by the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).

Work Place Policy in HIV/AIDS of Noolaham Foundation

Noolaham Foundation recognizes the seriousness of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and its impact on the workplace. The Noolaham Foundation supports national efforts to reduce the spread of infection and minimize the impact of the disease.

Objectives of the Policy

The purpose of this policy is to ensure a consistent and equitable approach to the prevention of HIV/AIDS among employees and their families, and to the management of the consequences of HIV/AIDS, including the care and support of employees living with HIV/AIDS. The policy has been developed and will be implemented in consultation with employees at all levels. It is in compliance with existing laws regarding HIV/AIDS and with the ILO Code of Practice on HIV/AIDS and the world of work.

Noolaham Foundation’s Commitment

Noolaham Foundation does not discriminate or tolerate discrimination against employees or job applicants on any grounds, including HIV status. While Noolaham Foundation recognizes that there are circumstances unique to HIV infection, this policy rests on the principle that HIV infection and AIDS should be treated like any other serious condition or illness that may affect employees. It takes into account the fact that employees with HIV may live full and active lives for a number of years. The Noolaham Foundation's commitment to maintaining a safe and healthy work environment for all employees is based on the recognition that HIV is not transmitted by casual contact
