Health education

Guangdong, China

By investing in initiatives to improve the health of workers, organizations can reduce downtimes, prevent delays, and increase both productivity and ROI. This article discusses how one organization--Business for Social Responsibility (BSR) (San Francisco, CA, USA)--is helping female workers in Asian factories better understand the complexities of living healthily via programs on reproductive health, family planning, and safe sex practices. It looks at BSR's accomplishments, the challenges it has faced, and the lessons it has learned in delivering its health education programs in corporations, an effort supported by the US-based David and Lucille Packard Foundation. It explains how organizations can improve performance by supporting better health practices among its workers.
