Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) improves the health of British Columbians by seeking province-wide solutions to specialized health care needs in collaboration with BC health authorities and other partners.
Provincial TB Services provides TB consultation for healthcare providers across BC. We also manage the majority of active TB cases and coordinate the case management of drug-resistant TB and complex pediatric cases.
We provide approximately 25,000 points of service in the Lower Mainland, and approximately 800 TB clinic visits a month. We offer testing, diagnosis and treatment to marginalized individuals exposed to TB in urban and rural or remote areas.
We lead the implementation of the TB Strategic Plan and incorporate digital solutions to TB care.
