In Namibia, the government has been combating major health epidemics such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and polio.B2Gold supports these initiatives as well as working with local stakeholders to identify other regional health issues that are critically impacting public health.Further success by the farmers led to the need to construct a covered market area to expand their commerce.
This program is positively impacting teachers and an estimated 350 children in the 13 communities near the mine.
One B2Gold sponsored program with a highly visible impact is the “Biblio Bus”.
This mobile library on a bus visits various communities every month making reading a real event in communities that have limited access to books.
Therefore, B2Gold believes that an investment in Community Health underpins the success of other initiatives intended to alleviate poverty.
Making a positive impact in the communities in which we work is a commitment at B2Gold, so we invest in Community Health wherever we have active projects.
