HIV screening for migrant workers still in effect

Providenciales, 10 Dec 2015 – If you are among the resident population which believes the government should not touch the current legal requirement for migrant workers to have a clean bill of health to start work in the TCI, then you may find relief in a statement issued by the Ministry today.

Health said it wants to clarify that there is no change in the policy, I quote, “HIV testing along with several other health tests and checks remain a part of the overall examination process where the results contribute to the decision as to classify an applicant as being fit or unfit to engage in employment in the Turks & Caicos Islands.”

The Ministry said that if anything, they are working to strengthen the policy, which they say, “will assist in streamlining the process and provide much needed clarity for all persons seeking health certification.”
