Tuberculosis

Despite its low prevalence in Canada, tuberculosis (TB) remains a public health challenge in this country. Overall incidence rates of active TB have not significantly declined in the past decade, and the burden of disease continues to concentrate among certain populations that are disproportionately represented among the new cases.
