ICMM guidance on HIVAids TB and malaria

first_imgA new publication by the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) – Good Practice Guidance on HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria – provides mining and metals company managers with practical information for disease management. Aimed at managers and health practitioners, the Guidance seeks to increase their understanding of the individual diseases, and also their interactions, in a non-technical way. It stresses the need for an integrated approach to the three diseases, and highlights the new links between them emerging in recent research. A systematic management process is described, comprising nine generic steps to determine the type and level of intervention required for HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria – culminating, where appropriate, in the implementation of a health program with associated monitoring and evaluation.ICMM Chief Operating Officer, John Groom, said, “The ICMM Guidance strongly recommends an integrated, community-based approach to health care and disease management, and it provides valuable insights into improving the effectiveness of implementation.”A full copy of the toolkit is available free of charge from our website (http://www.icmm.com/), or can be obtained in hard copy from info@icmm.comlast_img read more
