The time is now : CPHO spotlight on eliminating tuberculosis in Canada / [Theresa Tam].: HP5-130/2018E-PDF
"Tuberculosis (TB) is the epitome of inequity in public health; it is a social disease with a medical aspect. As this report makes clear, social determinants of health such as poverty, food insecurity, inadequate housing and overcrowding contribute to health inequity and are significant underlying risk factors for TB. While Canada has come a long way toward reaching TB elimination with the advent of antibiotics and overall improvement in socio-economic conditions, progress has plateaued since the 1980s"--p. 2.
