TB CARE II addresses TB in Zimbabwe
URC-managed TB Care II Project hosted a stakeholders’ meeting in Harare, Zimbabwe to discuss and offer potential solutions to the problem of high numbers of tuberculosis (TB) cases among artisanal and small-scale miners.
The high prevalence of TB in the mines was covered in today’s online issue of NewsDay, a major Zimbabwean newspaper. The article explains that Zimbabwe is one of TB high burden countries in the world, and that the co-infection rate of HIV and TB there is as high as 70 percent.
The URC-led TB CARE II consortium consists of a group of organizations bound by a common desire to reduce the impact of TB, especially in high burden TB and HIV settings. This global effort has included work in Malawi, Bangladesh, and Vietnam.
