The Disease Control Branch provides a variety of services to the individual and the community: preventive care (TB screening); treatment of acute problems (tuberculosis); and investigations to prevent the spread of certain communicable diseases.

The Communicable Disease Program provides investigation, consultation and information on contagious diseases, including water and food borne outbreaks. The program provides referrals for post-exposure treatment for individuals exposed to a communicable disease, if indicated.
