An assessment of corporate governance and HIV/AIDS in the South African corporate sector.


Renitha Rampersad

Corporate governance in recent years has gained considerable attention in South Africa. Although not legally compulsory, most large companies have to commit to the strict regulations of the King commission on corporate governance (King Report, 2002) as compliance to the King report is a prerequisite for companies listed on the JSE securities exchange. A significant question is whether companies can resolve wider socio -economic tensions which are a necessity if they are to protect workers and their skills. The results of this study highlights the views of the top 100 companies listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), on trends such as awareness created for employees, adoption of appropriate strategies, plans and policies to address and manage the potential impact of HIV/AIDS on business activities and the monitoring of economic indictors and other measures taken into account in order to assess the impact of HIV/AIDS.
