The 52nd Union World Conference on Lung Health took place virtually from 19-22 October and it was an engaging and eye-opening virtual event.

It was four days filled with pathbreaking science, some of which got extensive media coverage – including Ryan Dinkele’s  research which made it to The New York Times, Tuberculosis, Like Covid, Spreads in Aerosols, Scientists Report as well as results of the Practecal trial led by Médecins Sans Frontières which got covered in The Telegraph New hope for patients as ‘gruelling’ treatment for drug resistant TB could be cut to six months and the promising fingerstick blood test that was featured in Devex Fingerstick blood test can be a promising TB screening tool, study finds. These articles were only the tip of the iceberg, we received tremendous media coverage this year. 

We would like to extend a special thank you to all our delegates who attended the Union World Conference – your participation was invaluable and contributed immensely to the success of the event. As a registered delegate, you can view the session recordings on the virtual platform till December 31, 2021. 

We would like to encourage our delegates to fill in the conference evaluation survey and also apply for CME accreditation which is open until November 5, 2021. 

We look forward to welcoming you again next year.
