How could we improve community health around large gold mines in Burkina Faso?
This Digital Storytellers video-clip portrays ongoing research in Burkina Faso in the extractive industries sector. The researchers of the r4d project Health Impact Assessment for Sustainable Development (HIA4D) are applying different methods to collect information on the perceived changes in the health of people living in a community in a mining area. The results are expected help initiating a policy dialogue to engage stakeholders in joint efforts for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly the SDG 3 on good health and well-being.

This video-clip was produced as part of the r4d programme Digital Storytellers synthesis project. Its contents were filmed and selected by Dominik Dietler from the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute, Switzerland, in collaboration with local partners in Burkina Faso. The digital storytelling process was accompanied and supported by Paitití Lab.
