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. To support national health authorities, WHO has prepared guidance on developing an evidence-based public health strategy for artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM).

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