The 52nd Union World Conference on Lung Health will take place virtually from 19-22 October 2021. 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.
The conference theme, Lung Health for All: Solutions for a New Era, explores the challenges facing global health. With the world still in the grip of a lung health pandemic, it is also confronting questions about systemic race relations and how the same vulnerable communities that bear the brunt of TB and HIV have now been hit the hardest by COVID-19.
The Union LIVE channel will host the opening and closing ceremony, plenaries, rapporteur sessions, interviews, cultural films and much more
