Abstract

In Namibia, where reduced aid from international organizations has adversely affected access to healthcare, the private sector needs to increase their involvement in workplace health and wellness. We helped the Namibian Business Coalition on AIDS develop a cost-benefit projection model, which evaluates the cost-effectiveness of workplace wellness programs. To achieve this, we identified Namibia's prevalent health problems and determined possible health interventions. The model allows companies to make informed business decisions about investing in employee wellness.
