TBScience, Community Connect and Satellite sessions submissions in June 2021 

Category: News

We have received an overwhelming response with over 1,300 abstract and session submissions for the 52nd Union World Conference. While COVID19 has made some traction in the submissions this year, it is noteworthy to highlight  that submissions on tuberculosis continue to reign supreme with a huge interest in Access to Quality TB Care and Services, TB diagnostics as well as Active Case Finding and Contact Tracing. There has also been a growing interest in Civil Society, Advocacy and Community Engagement. 

We still have some amazing opportunities to engage in the conference:

- TBScience submissions are now open. Submissions will close on 20 July, 2021 (23:59 CEST). 
- Community Connect submissions are now open. Apply to be a Track Lead by 28 June, 2021 (17:00 CEST). Submissions will close on 21 July, 2021 (17:00 CEST).
- Satellite submissions to remain open till June 30, 2021 (23:59 CEST).
- Registration for the Conference will begin in August.
