"there is a TB crisis in Nunavut at this very moment. There are fourteen out of the twenty-five disparate communities wrestling with active and latent cases, many of them children. The numbers are small (compared to a place like India, they're infinitesimal), but they loom very large in a population of roughly thirty-five thousand…The active cases are in treatment. It's prodigiously difficult to maintain and oversee the regimen. But treatment works. As you know, TB is a hundred per cent curable." - from the Chief Public Health Officer's report

    "You have to treat the cause," Savikataaq said.
    "If you treat the symptoms, you're not going to get anywhere. You've got to find out what the root cause is for this and then you've got to fix the cause of why it's happening and break the cycle.
