One of the Hospersa events was the TB Booklet Launch, please read below to find out about it.
TB Booklet Launch
Hospersa recently launched A Workers’ Guide – Addressing HIV & TB in the Workplace (An integrated approach for the Health Sector) at Durban’s Olive Convention Centre. It is the first such workers guide in South Africa, spearheaded by workers for workers. Hospersa rolled out this project with the assistance of USAIDS, TB CARE ll South Africa and the International Labour Organisation (ILO).
Leading up to the launch, Hospersa conducted Voluntary Counselling & Testing at Work (VCT@Work) Days at various public sector institutions, where about 2000 health care workers tested for TB and HIV.
The launch of Hospersa’s TB booklet was the culmination of much hard work by Hospersa worker leaders, and the union is confident that it will prove to be a valuable reference guide in the workplace.
