Health Curing and caring in Africa UPDATE Occupational and public health developments within Heineken in 2002 Because public health provision is often limited, Heineken provides both curative and preventive health care for its employees and their families on the African continent. Progress in public health care, the health aspects of occupational health and safety and the background of our approach are summarised below.
