Presentation at World Bank Conference on Smart Investments in Health: Mining as a Catalyst for Building Sustainable Communities

Under the theme, Smart Investments in Health: Mining as a Catalyst for Building Sustainable Communities, associations of miners and ex-miners, as well as members of the private sector, governments and their development partners, and civil society have identified priority interventions for further investment in occupational and public healthcare in Southern Africa. The World Bank organised a critical conference on the 26th and 27th of July in Johannesburg, South Africa. Health Focus was given the opportunity to present results of several studies on occupational health and safety legislation and its application and facilitated discussions around harmonisation of occupational health and hygiene standards across the region.
