A woman stands on the side of the road and hitchikes in Eastern Cape. Many migrant workers from Eastern Cape go to work in the mines. South African Gold miners are particularly vulnerable to contracting TB because of the small, poorly ventilated work conditions, high rates of TB and high rates of silicosis, a lung disease often found in miners that increases the chance of catching TB.
