CADTH Webinar - Tuberculosis: International and Canadian perspectives on the “other” global pandemic

Tuberculosis (TB), one of the world’s deadliest infectious killers, has a great deal in common with COVID-19. They’re both respiratory diseases with similar symptoms such as cough, fever, and weakness. On World TB Day, join our panel of international and national experts on infectious diseases for an eye-opening discussion on TB — the other pandemic — and how COVID-19 has affected TB care efforts around the world. COVID-19 has overshadowed TB, but can what we’re learning from one pandemic help us address the other?
