Genesis joins TB project for Southern African miners

Genesis Analytics is part of a consortium that is developing a communication strategy targeting tuberculosis and related illnesses affecting mineworkers, ex-mineworkers, their families and communities in Southern Africa.

The eight-month project by the Wits Health Consortium forms part of a larger project, Tuberculosis in the Mining Sector in Southern Africa (TIMS). It is being implemented in Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

Genesis will review current communication strategies in the region, consult stakeholders to gain insights into the environment in which the strategy will be executed and pre-test materials with the target audiences.

Genesis will help to develop the overall communication strategy, which will be led by Meropa Communications, which has experience in public health issues like HIV and TB.
