TB in the Mining Sector in Southern Africa (TIMS) is a programme that was initiated to create a regionally coordinated response to TB and related illnesses affecting mineworkers, ex-mineworkers, their families and communities in Southern Africa. The Southern African Development Community (SADC), through the SADC Declaration provided the statutory commitment to the programme and galvanized the Global Fund to support a regional TB response in the mining sector.
