Zambia: Kazungula Bridge Workers Sensitised on HIV/AIDS

More than 400 workers involved in the construction of Kazungula Bridge from Zambia and Botswana have been sensitised on the dangers of HIV/AIDS as they implement the project.

The workers who consist of engineers, welders, general workers and mechanics, are benefitting from the HIV workplace programme.

Daewoo Engineering and Construction, which is constructing the bridge, has indicated that workers at the site were currently exhibiting positive behavioural change following the introduction of an HIV workplace programme.

Safety engineer Michael Kabwe said since engaging Chreso Ministries in September last year to sensitise the workers on HIV/ AIDS and on general health care, some workers had been tested for HIV.
