STAFF WELNESS-WORLD AIDS DAY COMMEMORATION
On the 1st of December SWACAA staff members joined other organisations and the world in commemorating World Aids Day. The 2016 World AIDS Day country slogan was Hands up for #HIVprevention. For SWACAA this event was also the re launching of a wellness program. The event was held at KMIII International Airport where staff members started with a walk from the traffic circle (close to the KMIII main gate) to the Terminal building. The Director General had the opportunity to address staff members and encouraged them to test for general wellbeing and know their status, in particular HIV. He further emphasised the significance of a wellness program in an organisation. He said that the program is about SWACAA staff member’s well-being which includes physical and mental wellbeing.
Prior to the commemoration of World Aids Day, staff members were given the opportunity to do voluntary HIV testing. On the 28th November a mobile clinic operated by the Swaziland Business Coalition on Health and Aids (SWABCHA) came to Matsapha Airport to do free testing to staff members. Members of staff were tested for diabetes, HIV & STIs. The same mobile clinic was available at KMIII on the 29th November to provide the services. Members of staff flocked there to utilise the services of the mobile clinic.
