New Union technical publication: 1st edition - Basic occupational safety and health for respiratory diseases: a desk guide for health facilities


This desk guide outlines a comprehensive approach to respiratory health, which health facilities can adapt and implement in resource-limited settings. Its development was supported by a review committee consisting of Union members with interest and expertise in this subject matter.
