TB Services & COVID-19

Provincial TB Services (TBS) is committed to providing appropriate, timely and safe care to British Columbians. In response to COVID-19, TBS will continue to see the highest priority TB patients:

  • Virtual Care visits: For many patients, appointments will now be over the phone and not in-person. Our intention is to, as much as possible, limit in-person clinic appointments. 
  • Rescheduled visits: For other patients, appointments may be cancelled or postponed.

Thank you for your patience and understanding when referring patients to TBS. The BCCDC also has a TB and COVID-19 section.

Hospital Discharge Planning

World TB Day

Each year, we commemorate World TB Day on March 24 to raise public awareness about the devastating health, social and economic consequences of TB, and to step up efforts to end the global TB epidemic. The date marks the day in 1882 when Dr. Robert Koch announced that he had discovered the bacterium that causes TB, which opened the way towards diagnosing and curing this disease.

The theme of World TB Day 2021 'The Clock is Ticking' conveys the sense that the world is running out of time to act on the commitments to end TB made by global leaders. This is especially critical in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic that has put End TB progress at risk, and to ensure equitable access to TB prevention and healthcare.
