HIV/AIDS and Sanlam
Our focus on our employees has always been a high priority – we’ve spent a considerable amount of time and energy on initiatives to improve their overall work experience.
As a microcosm of South African society, Sanlam cannot escape the potential impact that HIV/Aids has on our industry and our country at large.
One of the objectives of Sanlam's HIV/Aids policy is to empower our employees to prevent the spread of HIV/Aids through education and training. Sanlam's very successful Voluntary Counselling and Testing Campaign, which we launched towards the end of 2007 is further testament of our commitment to provide our employees with all the information, treatment and support they require.

Because we realise the potential impact that HIV/Aids has on our industry, we’ve developed a HIV/Aids policy, to ensure we create a working environment that attracts, trains and retains skilled people. For our complete HIV/Aids policy, click here.
As the HIV/Aids epidemic will undoubtedly have a major impact on the South African economy and by extension on Sanlam, a HIV/Aids strategy was developed for Sanlam by a multi-disciplinary AIDS task team, consisting of employees from across the business. For our full HIV/Aids strategy, click here.
