Sharing expertise: The Union’s technical assistance

Published on


The Union offers technical assistance at the request of governments, agencies and other organisations. Our goal is to provide assistance that addresses both national priorities and international standards, policies and objectives.

The Union’s focus is on working hand-in-hand, in partnership with the country. Union experts provide the support in developing and implementing the protocols and implementation planning needed to meet the particular needs and priorities of each country.

This assistance is based on the real and practical experience of The Union’s work for decades at the forefront in the fight against tuberculosis, lung disease and tobacco use.
