Why We Still Need to Be Very Concerned About Tuberculosis | ft. Dr. Elizabeth Rea and Tina Campbell from Stop TB Canada
Show Notes
There is an infectious disease affecting people all around the world and was responsible for more than 1 million deaths globally in 2020. If you had to guess, maybe you would think it was COVID-19. Think again, because it's a disease that was first discovered in the 1800s, called Tuberculosis (TB). In this episode of the Public Health Insight Podcast, we’ll be speaking with two guests from Stop TB Canada about:

  • The history of TB in Canada and the current burden of disease;
  • How the TB programs at Toronto Public Health and the Northern Inter-Tribal Health Authority (NITHA) typically operate;
  • The impact of COVID-19 on patients and services; and
  • The urgent need to prioritize programs targeted to the prevention, control, and elimination of this disease.
