Purpose: The development of a framework for a workplace wellness programme for HIV/AIDS infected and/or affected nurses in South Africa, who comprise registered nurses and midwives, enrolled staff nurses and auxiliary nurses. Research objectives: To identify and describe components for a framework of a workplace wellness programme. Background: Registered nurses and midwives, enrolled staff nurses and auxiliary nurses (referred to as nurses) in the South African nursing workforce are confronted daily with HIV/AIDS in the workplace due to the high HIV/AIDS prevalence rate among sexually and economically active adult women between 15-49 years of age. The research explains how health and wellness could be promoted by instituting a workplace wellness programme. Research design: Quantitative descriptive research. Findings: The nurses emphasised the threat of HIV/AIDS and considered a workplace wellness programme a priority. Conclusion: A logic model underpinned the workplace wellness programme framework.
