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.
