The construction sector is one of the most vulnerable to HIV and AIDS epidemic due to its highly mobile workforce. The employees often travel long distances and spend long periods away from their families. Moreover, the workers, who are mostly men, are often housed in an all-male environment for long periods hence likelihood of risky sexual behavior such as multiple concurrent sexual relations, a driving force of HIV spread. Therefore, the policy would assist in reducing the number of new infections which is still very high.
This policy details the direction and intent of the Government of Malawi in facilitating infrastructure development in Malawi. This Policy aims at guiding the Construction Industry in ensuring an enabling environment for the development of a vibrant, efficient and sustainable local construction industry in line with the Vision 2020.
