Bank supports World AIDS Day
As a show of support in the fight against HIV/AIDS, Standard Bank employees will take part in the bank’s Hands Up for HIV Prevention campaign that will take place on World Aids day on Thursday, 1 December. Namibia has among the highest HIV infection rates in the world, with the highest prevalence rate recorded in the Zambezi region at 23.7%. Employees will be tasked with thinking of ideas on how to prevent the infection of HIV and writing it the palms of their hands as a sign of solidarity.
