Thank you to our members for making our gift membership initiative a success

Student presenting at Union World Conference

Young people are vital to continue the battle against tuberculosis and lung disease. To help young people join The Union, last year we introduced a gift membership initiative which allows members to purchase a student membership on behalf of an unknown young person who may struggle to get a Union membership on their own. Union members have generously contributed to help tomorrow’s leaders in lung health access the vast Union resources.
