Stopping HIV from Truckin’ in Zimbabwe

Those long and lonely journeys on the open road make Zimbabwe’s truckers susceptible to HIV—especially when they are offered sex for money several times a night. Pioneer Transport, a trucking firm in the African country, claims that HIV infections among its truckers cost the company dearly each year when drivers cannot work due to HIV-related illness.

Pioneer is educating and protecting its employees by discreetly offering condoms to its drivers and by setting up parking depots where truckers may spend the night with their spouses.

The company’s operations manager, Kelvin Motsi, recommends that trucking companies work with the government to establish parking bays with a heavy police presence to prevent prostitutes from soliciting sex from truckers.
