This project, led by Principal Investigator Richard Long of the University of Alberta, will analyze data from The Determinants of TB Transmission in the Canadian-born Population of the Prairie Provinces (DTT) through the lens of the newly launched 2012 Health Canada Strategy against Tuberculosis for First Nations on reserve. Since there was no Aboriginal TB patient consultation process in the development of the strategy, the DTT project interviews with Aboriginal TB patients will provide some of this missing perspective.

Goals / Outcomes: This new analysis will provide evidence to promote engagement of First Nations communities, upon which the 2012 Strategy depends for success.
