This article reports the results of a descriptive study of HIV and AIDS in manufacturing workplaces. The levels of HIV infection, illness and death were established. Although there had been an impact on costs, these had been contained without a negative impact on profitability. Every workplace had engaged in some aspects of HIV and AIDS management and had complied with legal requirements. The workforce enjoyed an existing base of health security. The management of every workplace had responded to the specific issue of HIV, although programme usage was limited. HIV programmes were management driven but there was limited involvement from unions.
