AQUITY has digital chest X-ray containers in two districts, OR Tambo, Eastern Cape; and Ehlanzeni, Mpumalanga. We have used geographical information system (GIS) mapping to place the X-ray containers in communities with a high TB burden:
The Ehlanzeni District Municipality is situated in the northeast of the Mpumalanga province. It makes up just over a third of the province’s geographical area. The district is comprised of four local municipalities: Bushbuckridge, City of Mbombela, Nkomazi and Thaba Chweu.
The OR Tambo District Municipality is situated along the eastern part of the Eastern Cape province and is largely rural, with only 9.3% of the population living in the urban areas.
