Union World Lung Conference on Lung Health 2017

Project HOPE’s TB experts are among the thousands of delegates from around the globe gathering at the annual Union World Lung Conference on Lung Health, this year held in Guadalajara, Mexico. 

In its 48th year, the conference is the world’s largest gathering of clinicians, public health workers, health program managers, policymakers, researchers and advocates working to end the suffering caused by lung disease, with a focus specifically on the challenges faced by the low- and middle-income countries. 

This year’s conference theme, Accelerating Towards Elimination, is highlighting the progress toward ending tuberculous, a 2030 objective set by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The conference also addresses other lung disease, including diseases caused by tobacco use and air pollution. 

The Project HOPE team is presenting five posters on successful TB programming supporting the 2030 goal of ending TB. The poster presentations include increasing access to TB diagnosis and treatment for migrants, the role of field promoters in TB response and innovations in TB sputum transport solutions. Check out the full list of posters and publication dates.
