The Minamata Convention requires that a National Action Plan for artisanal and small-scale gold mining include a public health strategy on the exposure of miners and their communities to mercury.

Webinar presentations will include an overview of the approach in the guidance and insights and experiences from countries that pilot tested the approach.
