Social responsibility is an important part of a modern business. Businesses that engage in operations or have subcontractors in countries that are afflicted with tuberculosis have a particular responsibility for employees and their families.
Many businesses would also like to take greater social responsibility for the local communities surrounding their operations.
We know that people who work in mining operations and the textile industry, for example, often have a very high incidence of tuberculosis. It is important to work together with the companies in the countries in question to reduce the risk of infection and the number of cases of the disease. This safeguards the health of the employees, improves productivity, protects the company’s reputation and is an expression of active social responsibility taken by the company.
If you would like to support our work in countries where your company operates, or if you would like input as to how your company can best handle people who have been infected by tuberculosis?
