51st Union World Conference on Lung Health

October 20 - October 24

Organized by The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease

51st Union World Conference on Lung Health

October 20 – 24, 2020

More Information

The Union World Conference on Lung Health is the world’s largest gathering of clinicians and public health workers, health programme managers, policymakers, researchers and advocates working to end the suffering caused by lung disease, with a focus specifically on the challenges faced by low-and lower-middle income populations. Of the 10 million people who die each year from lung diseases, some 80 percent live in these resource-limited settings. Organising international conferences on tuberculosis (TB) and related subjects has been a core activity of The Union since its founding in 1920.

While international travel and large gatherings remain restricted due to COVID-19, The Union wishes to reassure all those dedicated to lung health that the 51st Union World Conference on Lung Health will take place virtually, providing the opportunity to innovate on the conference model familiar to the thousands of delegates who have participated in the past.
