The assessment of Workplace Programmes (WPPs) in the public and private sector is part of the Namibian HIV Research and Evaluation Agenda. The study was hosted by the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MoHSS) and conducted by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), in cooperation with the University of Namibia (UNAM). Between January and March 2011 a survey was conducted in Windhoek and four regions. Two ministries represented public sector organisations; six transport companies were selected in the private sector. The principal study objective was to assess the current status of GIZ supported WPPs, and HIV knowledge, attitude and behaviour of the employees in both sectors. In the public sector, the additional research question was to compare the current status of the WPP in the capital (Windhoek) and the regions; in the private sector, companies with an established WPP were compared to companies, which only started implementing WPPs recently. The methodology of this cross-sectional study based on a knowledge, attitude and behaviour (KAB) questionnaire. Respondents in the selected settings (ministries and companies) were selected by a random sample of the workforce in the defined groups. By this, a total of 1315 respondents participated and filled out the questionnaire.
