Program Description

The MULU project strengthened workplace HIV prevention and served employees at 100 worksites from various sectors of the Ethiopian economy, including mining, manufacturing, construction, agriculture, and textiles.

The initiative supported capacity development of enterprises with high-volume labor forces to design and manage comprehensive HIV prevention interventions, develop workplace policies, and allocate resources effectively to combat HIV.

Program Goals

  • Prevent new HIV infections by reducing behavioral risk factors
  • Improve access to reproductive health and HIV prevention services and commodities
  • Improve the capacity of large-scale workplaces to support HIV prevention initiatives
