Using a “Training the Trainers” approach, the Bali Hotels Association (BHA) conducted courses November 20-23, 2012, providing information on the spread of HIV/AIDS, modes of infection, the rights the infected and counseling within the work environment.

All participating hotel committed to conducting additional awareness training and informational events in order to educate their respective staffs by utilizing their newly trained resource persons graduating from the BHA course. In time, it is hoped that the hotels will play a role in educating their surrounding communities, particularly the youth living in those settings.

Through April 2013, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ- German Society for International Cooperation
), BHA and the Planned Parenthood Association (PKBI) will continue to work together to educate thousands of hospitality and tourism workers. While BHA provides a ready audience, infrastructure and organizational assistance, GIZ and PKBI contribute with trainers, training materials, and their organizational expertise.

Enthusiastically received by the first batch of trainees, results are being seen in additional training now underway at each participating hotel and the eagerness to share the facts on preventing HIV/AIDS with the community at large in Bali.

BHA is committed to implement a HIV/AIDS Workplace Policy in 2013 with the aim of ensuring HIV/AIDS positive individuals working at BHA hotels will not be the victims of discrimination.

After the successful launch in Bali, GIZ is preparing to start a similar initiative in Lombok, making use of the valuable experience gathered during its collaboration with BHA.

With 250 million inhabitants, the Republic of Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world and the country with the fastest growing HIV rates in Asia where an estimated 400.000 people live with HIV/AIDS

Recent reports estimate one percent of pregnant women in Bali are infected with HIV/AIDS. According to the AIDS Commission (KPA) in Denpasar, the number of people living with HIV/AIDS in Bali has increased by an alarmingly 24% during 2011 to 5.222 people, compared to 4.210 people in 2010.
