Cape Dorset TB screening clinic begins this week – Nunatsiaq News

Clinic aims to see all of Nunavut community’s 1,500 residents

February 12, 2019

Nunavut’s third tuberculosis screening clinic begins this week.

The Government of Nunavut Department of Health is hosting the clinic in Cape Dorset starting Tuesday, Feb. 12, with the goal of testing all the community’s 1,500 residents for the respiratory infection.

Federal and territorial health agencies launched Nunavut’s first screening clinic in Qikiqtarjuaq in early 2018, following the territory’s worst year on record for active TB cases, including the highly publicized death of a teenage girl.

Rates of TB remain 50 times higher in Nunavut than in rest of Canada.
