Tuberculosis (TB) is the epitome of inequity in public health; it is a social disease with a medical aspect. As this report makes clear, social determinants of health such as poverty, food insecurity, inadequate housing and overcrowding contribute to health inequity and are significant underlying risk factors for TB.

Since 2003, the World Bank publishes the Ease of Doing Business (EDB) Index aimed at measuring the regulatory efficiency and institutional quality of key processes that affect the business environment in a given economy. While highly influential, particularly in the developing world, the EDB has also been faced with criticism and at times controversies. In 2020, the World Bank decided to interrupt temporarily the publication of the EDB report as a result of an audit that revealed politically motivated manipulation of EDB rankings. Over time, Canada’s relative rankings fell from 4th in 2007 to 23rd in 2020 with no significant changes in its business environments or policies.
