Masiza Lukhele is an ex-miner who lives in Buseleni - a chiefdom found in Nkwene constituency. He earns a living from keeping poultry in a small scale that helps him keep his family slightly above the poverty datum line. He was diagnosed with TB while working in the dusty tunnels of one of the South African mines. He first enrolled for treatment in Lebanon hospital in the Republic of South Africa and was successful in completing a six months long treatment. During his treatment he was compelled to retire from work.
SAfAIDS in collaboration with the miners association conducted 2 meetings with TB affected communities in 2 Constituencies (Nkwene and Mpolonjeni) on 19-20th November 2014. During these meetings the communities were given refresher training on TB (with more emphasis on TB symptoms, community coordinated support in identifying TB patients for TB treatment and adherence). The newly developed National Strategic Plan (NSP 2015-2019) on TB was introduced to the communities through a presentation by the National TB Programme (NTP).
