The communities around our operations face challenges in accessing basic healthcare facilities, as well as the need to address endemic problems such as malaria and HIV/AIDS. Katanga is investing in healthcare programs to benefit employees, their dependents and the broader community through selected high-impact interventions.

We collaborate with local health zones to assess the overall health conditions and define a common strategy to address the major community health risks and concerns. We are active in the rehabilitation of existing health facilities, training of medical staff of reference hospitals and local health centers, awareness initiatives in communities, periodic drugs donation and assistance to vaccination campaigns in urban and rural areas.

To date Katanga has completed a range of infrastructure improvements at the Mwangeji Hospital in Kolwezi, including refurbishing and restocking of the pharmacy; drilling boreholes and installing related infrastructure to provide water; constructing of two new sanitation blocks that restored toilet and shower capacity to the hospital; assisting with the rehabilitation and electricity supply to the morgue.

In addition, we work in synergy with the local representatives of PNMLS (Plan National Multisectoriel de Lutte au SIDA), the national programme for the fight against HIV, to raise awareness in communities through sensitization initiatives and peer educators and improve the capacities and skills of medical staff in reference hospitals and health centres.
