Lesotho

HIV and tuberculosis (TB) are a deadly combination, and migrant miners are at increased risk for both—and for spreading infection to their families when visiting home. ICAP is working with the Lesotho Ministry of Health to ensure comprehensive prevention, testing, and treatment for HIV and TB by training health workers, locating health services in places where miners gather, and rolling out prevention and screening for miners’ families. ICAP is also strengthening national health information systems to support disease surveillance, linkage and retention in care, and ultimately epidemic control.
