The Tuberculosis Program Evaluation and Research Unit (TB PE & RU) was created in 1998 out of seed money from Alberta Health and the University of Alberta. The TB PE&RU operates on the assumption that strategic planning and TB elimination requires ongoing evaluation of existing programs as well as operational research. Through successful grant applications and contracts over the past 16 years the Unit has evolved and formalized.

The TB PE & RU provides programming and data analysis support to national, provincial, regional and local public health and health care organizations to inform strategic planning and resource management specific to tuberculosis prevention and care. The Unit aims to contribute directly or indirectly towards the elimination of tuberculosis in Alberta and Canada through education, effective stakeholder liaisons and the creation of a "TB think tank" where academic research is bridged to health care providers in the field.
