Benefits and costs of reducing tuberculosis among Southern Africa's mineworkers - overview (English)

The spread of tuberculosis (TB) by migrant mineworkers in South Africa is a serious public health problem. The key messages in this brief include: 1) at 2,500-3,000 cases for every 100,000 people, TB incidence among mineworkers in South Africa is the highest among any working population in the world; 2) the World Bank is working with national health ministries, the Stop TB Partnership, mining companies, mineworkers’ and exmineworkers' associations and other partners to help resolve the 100-year-old problem of TB among mineworkers; 3) mineworkers are more susceptible to TB because many live with HIV and/or develop silicosis; 4) preliminary findings from a study commissioned by the World Bank on the economics of TB prevention and control in these four countries suggest that the cost of testing and treating all mineworkers is significant (about R330 million or US $33 million a year), but would result in considerable long-term benefits, as productivity increases and fewer people require treatment; and 5) the study will recommend a three-pronged approach to reduce TB among mineworkers: a) test and treat all gold mineworkers for TB over two years, followed by all mineworkers, b) set up a cross-border tracking and referral system to reach all former mineworkers, c) improve working/living conditions to reduce the risk of occupational lung disease. ... See More +
