Select Committee on International Development Minutes of Evidence

Third supplementary memorandum submitted by the Department for International Development


  DFID received the following information from David Steele, the ETI information officer, about the relationship of HIV/AIDS to ETI members' practice when vetting overseas suppliers.

  "HIV/AIDS issues have been encountered by a number of our company members and ETI future policy in this respect is under discussion. Currently the HIV/AIDS policy of suppliers could be considered under the non-discrimination and health and safety sections of the ETI Base Code (health and safety in terms of promoting proactive HIV/AIDS education programmes, not exclusion of those HIV+)."
