A project funded by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund has enabled the Centre for the Study of Violence (CSVR) and the Lesotho Mounted Police Services (LMPS) to work together since 2008 to address the problem of HIV/AIDS in the LMPS. In 2010 this project led to the development of a workplace HIV-AIDS policy by the LMPS. In 2011 a series of workshops were held with members of the LMPS to promote the HIV/AIDS workplace policy. This report provides an overview of the project and the workshop process as well as key issues that were raised by participants in the workshops.
