Mr David Macana

Excellet 2023 Project 

I hailing from Khuma, a small township in Stillfontein, the semi-rural gold and platinum mining region of South Africa’s North-West Province. I founded the Silicosis Awareness Program (SAP), dedicated to raising awareness about TB, HIV, and Silicosis. I’m also the Director of Excellent Project 2030 (E2030), a
movement for ex-mineworkers. As an ex-mineworker and three-time TB survivor, I proudly serve as the National TB ambassador and a member of the Civil Society Forum (CSF). Currently, I’m the TB alternate member at the Global Fund (GF) Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) and co-chair the National Civil Society TB Task Team. Additionally, I’m the Demand Generation Mobilizer and TB Ambassador for Show Me Your Number (SMYN). I advocate for affordable TB treatment, transforming TB management from top-down to community-inclusive.
