The Hill Times: Ending TB among Canada’s Indigenous peoples: treat the fundamental causes, not just the disease – McGill Newsroom

Last year, the federal government announced it would spend $27.5-million over five years on an ambitious plan to end tuberculosis (TB) across Inuit Nunangat, Inuit regions of Canada, by 2030.

Eradication of TB in Canada’s Indigenous populations will only happen with a substantial improvement in the general health and social conditions of these populations. Housing is one underlying problem influencing TB transmission, and major investments are needed to address housing shortages and resultant overcrowding, as well as air-circulation issues. We congratulate the government for its $640-million investment in its 2017 and 2018 budgets for Inuit housing. It’s important that this funding be deployed as soon as possible.
