This episode is the third in our 'TB Talk' series, conversations that originated at End TB 2017, a meeting of the North American Region of the International Union Against Tuberculosis. This episode, we hear from Dr. Malcolm King, a professor in the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University. He presented at the event on social determinants of health in remote, northern and Indigenous communities. We asked him about their importance to the rate of new TB infections and better TB outcomes.
