IMPACT TB team participates in 2019 Union Conference on Lung Health

Posted on: November 06, 2019

The Union World Conference on Lung Health is the world’s largest gathering of clinicians and public health workers, health programme managers, policymakers and researchers working to end the suffering caused by lung disease, with a focus specifically on the challenges faced by low-and lower-middle income populations. Of the 10 million people who die each year from lung diseases, some 80 percent live in these resource-limited settings.

We were delighted to have representation from all IMPACT TB team partners who were there to share their results at the 50th edition in Hyderabad, India. The conference theme for this year, ‘Ending the Emergency: Science, Leadership, Action’, focused on what is needed to ensure commitments become action, and that lifesaving targets are met.
