Partnership on health and mobility in the mining sector of Southern Africa

Partnership on health and mobility in the mining sector of Southern Africa

Improving health outcomes of migrant mine workers, their families and affected communities in Mozambique, South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland, with particular focus on mine worker sending, transit, and destination communities.

Due to a number of structural, environmental and individual factors, mineworkers, their families and affected communities face increased HIV vulnerability. Through this project, IOM and VSO RAISA seek to contribute to improved health outcomes of 20,000 migrant mine-workers, their families and affected communities in southern Africa over three years, with particular focus on mine worker sending, transit, and destination communities of Lesotho, Mozambique, South Africa and Swaziland.

There are four key project components: research and information dissemination; advocacy for policy development; service delivery and capacity building; and regional coordination.
