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.

The Impact of our work

The Union is the world’s first global health organisation, founded in 1920. We are a global leader in ending TB, we fight the tobacco industry, and we solve key problems in treating major diseases.
