We work to reduce the impact of TB in BC through health promotion, disease prevention, TB treatment and follow-up.
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.
Provincial TB Services (TBS) is committed to providing appropriate, timely and safe care to British Columbians.
In response to the Covid19 Pandemic, TBS will continue to see the highest priority TB patients. For many, this will include “virtual care visits” which means having the appointment over the phone versus in person. Our intention is to, as much as possible, limit in-person clinic appointments wherever possible. For others, it may result in your appointment being cancelled or postponed.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during unprecedented times.
