World AIDS Day is December 1. In a post on the U.S. Department of Labor's blog site, Jennifer Sheehy, ODEP Deputy Assistant Secretary, discussed the importance of employment to people living with HIV/AIDS. ODEP represents the Department on both the Federal HIV/AIDS Web Council and National HIV/AIDS Strategy Federal Interagency Workgroup, and provides an employment focus to the nation's HIV/AIDS efforts. In the blog, Sheehy highlighted relevant resources available through ODEP, including the “Getting to Work” training curriculum for service and housing providers, developed in partnership with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. “Through these and other initiatives, we at the Labor Department are proud to play a role in helping all people living with HIV/AIDS gain skills and put them to work,” said Sheehy.
