​HIV/Aids and Sanlam

Sanlam strives to ensure a working environment where employees living with HIV/Aids are protected from unfair discrimination and stigmatisation and all employees have access to training, information and counselling services relating to HIV/Aids.

Sanlam realises the potential impact that HIV/Aids has on the financial services industry. The Group has developed an HIV/Aids policy, to ensure the creation of a working environment that attracts, trains and retains skilled people.

​A number of initiatives have been initiated to realise the objectives of the policy within the Sanlam Group. In the broader community, the Sanlam Foundation has partnered with the Regency Foundation to prevent and manage HIV/Aids in schools. The programme, HIV & Me, integrates the scientific and social aspects of the epidemic and encourages behavioural change and on-going healthy lifestyles. It forms part of Sanlam’s commitment to being a good corporate citizen.
