The Saskatchewan Provincial Tuberculosis Strategy aims to better serve Saskatchewan residents with tuberculosis and those at risk of developing it. The strategy takes a patient-centred, community-designed, team-delivered approach to build on the care and services already in place.
The goal is to reduce the province's TB rate by 25 per cent over five years.
The strategy was developed through extensive consultation with partners and stakeholders, and focuses on five areas:
- clinical diagnosis and treatment;
- prevention and community engagement;
- training and education;
- epidemiology and surveillance; and
- quality improvement, program evaluation and research.
