Good Practice Guidance on HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
This guidance was produced by the International Council on Mining and Metals and is aimed at managers and health practitioners. This toolkit seeks to increase their understanding of the HIV/AIDS, TB, and malaria. The International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) is a CEO-led industry group that addresses key priorities and emerging issues within the industry. The Guidance explains the characteristics of each disease – the stages, signs and symptoms, spread, diagnosis and treatment. The uniquely different prevention, treatment and control mechanisms of the three diseases are recognized. A systematic management process is described, comprising nine steps to determine the type and level of intervention required for HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria. The guidance should be used as a practical and accessible tool in the management of HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria throughout the lifecycle of a project. It is designed to enable a project’s staff (e.g., mine managers) to ask the right questions in order to guide effective health interventions and to seek appropriate technical expertise where necessary.
