This document contains a set of voluntary health and management guidelines for corporations and their supply chains to promote continual improvement and application of good practices, better access to men’s and women’s health services, and more effective use of health resources at workplaces in the developing world. It is focused on both quality of health services provided at the workplace and adequacy of company policies and management systems to ensure that workers have access to health services. The main goals of the guidelines are to: 1) help enterprises—multinational companies and their supplier or subsidiary companies in developing countries—improve the management and the quality of workplace health facilities and services in cost-effective, practical, and auditable ways, and 2) ensure that women and men workers in developing countries have access to primary health services, whether provided on- or off-site. The three main sections of the document are: Overview of the Workplace Health Facility Guidelines and Management Benchmarks, Workplace Health Services Guidelines, and Management Systems and Corporate Leadership Guidelines.
