Most Canadians think that tuberculosis (TB) is a disease of the past. In reality, while general rates of TB in Canada are slowly decreasing, in some regions such as Nunavut and Manitoba, they have risen over the past decade. In this Café Scientifique, we explore, through the lens of research, clinical care, public health, human rights, advocacy and personal experience, the story behind the numbers —how socioeconomic, environmental, biological and cultural factors are affecting the incidence of TB in Canadian communities, and how our experience fits within the context of global TB and the pursuit of TB control/ eradication.
