TB rates among the Inuit in Canada have been reported as among the highest in the world. In Canada, the Inuit TB rate is about 300 times higher than that of the non-Indigenous Canadian-born population. TB is not just a medical issue: it is a complex socio-cultural disease requiring culturally appropriate public health approaches.
