Our Story

The Union World Conference is the world’s largest gathering of researchers, global advocates, scientists, healthcare professionals, students and community members working to end the suffering caused by #tuberculosis and #lungdisease, 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.

#TBScience and the Union World Conference provide an unrivaled platform for all members of the global lung health community to come together to share knowledge, explore best practise and engage in frank debate focused on the fight to #EndTB, improve #lunghealth and fight #airpollution.

In 2020 #TBScience and #UnionConf will take place, for the very first time, online as a fully virtual event and will run from 20 to 24 October. The theme will be #AdvancingPrevention.

I am an MDR TB survivor from Cape Town South Africa. I was a registered nurse working in a private dialysis unit when I contracted TB. Now 7 years after being cured, I am suffering from the long term side effects of the MDR TB drugs..... Cardiovascular Disease, have had 2 CVA's, have 2 stents in my left Coronary artery.... My quality of life has been reduced dramatically..... And all because I inhaled the MDR TB bacillus..... Please can we work on improving MDR and XDR treatment.....???
