Lung Health for All: Solutions for a New Era

The 52nd Union World Conference on Lung Health will take place virtually from 19-22 October 2021.

The conference theme, Lung Health for All: Solutions for a New Era, explores the challenges facing global health. With the world still in the grip of a lung health pandemic, it is also confronting questions about systemic race relations and how the same vulnerable communities that bear the brunt of TB and HIV have now been hit the hardest by COVID-19.

The conference will explore solutions to these challenges with the latest science and research. It will also feature basic and translational TB research (TBScience) and the most pressing issues facing affected communities (Community Connect).

The Programme Schedule

The programme features exciting new research relating to pediatric TB, COVID-19 in pregnant women, short all-oral regimens for drug-resistant TB, COVID-19 links to smoking, innovations in diagnostics, global epidemics resulting from zoonotic diseases, tobacco control and tobacco industry interference, community engagement including human rights, the latest breakthroughs in TBScience and many more interesting topics
