Today, on #WorldLungDay, The Union joins with members of @firs_lungsfirst and other partner organisations to advocate for respiratory health globally and call for more research to prevent, detect and treat respiratory infections.

Respiratory infections, including viruses like SARS-CoV-2, impose an immense worldwide health burden:

· Each year almost 700,000 children die from pneumonia
· Each year there are 10 million new cases of tuberculosis and 1.5 million deaths
· This year #COVID19 has affected more than 25 million people worldwide and nearly 860,000 have died by the beginning of September 2020.

Mike Bloomberg, Founder of Bloomberg Philanthropies and Bloomberg LP and three-term Mayor of New York City has been announced as a keynote speaker at the inaugural Leadership Summit on Tobacco Control.

This new virtual Summit will take place online, May 6 -7, 2021 and is being organised by the secretariat of the 18th World Conference on Tobacco or Health.

The Summit will provide a platform for participants to explore the changing economic and political landscape of tobacco and the theme is #NavigatingChange.

Stephen Donnelly, Minister of Health for Ireland, will also be a keynote speaker at the Summit and registration will open to all in January 2021.

Worldwide, tobacco use kills eight million people every year – including 65,000 children who die from illnesses caused by second-hand smoke. Friday September 25 is #WorldLungDay.

“With so many lives at stake, this first ever summit comes at a critical time for global leaders in tobacco control,” said Mike R Bloomberg.

The 18th World Conference on Tobacco Or Health had been due to take place in Dublin, Ireland, in March 2021. However due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic this has now been postponed to until 8-10 March 2022 in the same city.

It's been estimated that the impact of #COVID19 could result in a setback of at least five to eight years in the fight against #TB – bringing 2021 global TB incidence and deaths to levels not seen since 2013 and 2016 respectively – due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Union World Conference on Lung Health has a special focus on the intersection of #TB and #lunghealth with #COVID19. For the #UnionConf programme outline go to: https://bit.ly/3mvINxW and to register go to: https://join.theunion.org//UnionWorldConference-registernowfb

It has been estimated that globally, a three-month lockdown and a protracted 10-month restoration could lead to an additional 6.3 million people falling ill with #tuberculosis and an additional 1.4 million #TB deaths over the next five years.

This year's virtual #UnionConf will feature a special focus on the intersection of TB and lung health with #COVID19 and will include studies evaluating the pandemic’s impact on national TB programmes in Nigeria, Japan, Tibet, Uganda and Belarus.
