Taima TB is a group of research projects aimed at helping Inuit in Canada stop the transmission of tuberculosis (TB)  in their communities.

The work of Taima TB is based on the following principles:

  • Collaboration: Working together with those affected by TB and those committed to stopping it to design and test strategies intended to break the cycle of transmission.
  • Education: Developing educational tools that are tailored to the unique cultural and geographic aspects of Inuit communities.  Promoting learning through observation, sharing, and experience.
  • Innovation: Applying new technologies to enhance the strong public health work already being done to halt the spread of this disease.
  • Evaluation: Generating evidence for effective TB prevention and control interventions.
