A total of 24 member organisations and one non-member organisation were reached through 3 workshops organized with the intention of developing the consortium policy and their HIV/AIDS work place policies. The project sort to establish how many among the consortium members had developed HIV/AIDS work place policies and consequently assist those who did not have the said policies, to develop their own.

· Needs assessment of member organizations/capacity audit
· Sensitization workshop for CRECO and its members
· Development of a consortia HIV and AIDS policy
· In house training and policy development for member organizations
