SU Policies


Stellenbosch University recognises that HIV and Aids are serious public health problems that have personal, socio-economic, employment and human rights implications. 

​Stellenbosch University’s HIV policy for staff and students set out guidelines for:

    • creating a non-discriminatory work and academic environment;

    • HIV testing, confidentiality and disclosure;

    • providing equitable employee benefits;

    • preventing and handling incidents of exposure to HIV during injury at work;

    • dealing with dismissals; and

    • managing grievance procedures.​

​​This policy is also intended to promote equality and non-discrimination between HIV-infected staff and students and those without the virus, create a supportive work and academic environment for HIV-positive staff and students, and protect the human rights and dignity of people living with HIV and Aids.

Relevant SU Policy documents are availa​ble under the corresponding heading.
