TB in the Mining Sector

The information and materials on this page part of the TB in the Mining Sector in Southern Africa (TIMS) project. Miners in Southern Africa have some of the highest rates of TB in the world but access to health services for miners and ex-miners is often limited, or non-existent. For their spouses and families, accessing care can be even more difficult. Human rights and gender-related barriers are key factors which limit access to information and health services.

To help civil society organizations and community groups address some of these issues related to TB in the Mining Sector, a video toolkit provides an overview of common challenges and potential solutions.
