Tb In The Mining Industry

[title]

The Southern Africa TB in the Mining Sector Initiative

Tuberculosis (TB) is a significant problem in the mining industry in Southern Africa. In South Africa alone, TB rates within the mining workforce are estimated at 2,500-3,000 cases per 100,000 individuals. This incidence is 10 times the WHO threshold for a health emergency, and is also nearly three times the incidence rate in the general population.‘Dying for gold’: the effects of mineral mining on HIV,,Workers in South Africa’s gold mining industry have among the highest incidences of tuberculosis in the world, of between 3000 and 7000 cases per 100,000 population per year, compared with 981 per 100,000 population in South Africa overall and a global incidence of 128 per 100,000 population per year .TB & HIV in South Africa - National Strategic Plans,,TB was first identified in South Africa as long ago as the seventeenth century. It is however unclear exactly when TB began to spread so quickly that it became of epidemic proportions but the years between 1895 and 1910 seem to have been critical. In 1919 TB was made a notifiable disease throughout the entire country.
