October 11-14, 2017 – Guadalajara, Mexico
The 48th Union World Conference on Lung Health – Accelerating Towards Elimination will take place in Guadalajara, Mexico from October 11-14th, 2017. According to the event organizers “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 the low- and middle-income countries. Of the 10 million people who die each year from lung diseases, some 80 per cent live in these resource-limited countries.
Our theme this year, ‘Accelerating Toward Elimination’ will build on the momentum from the conference in Liverpool, drawing together 4000 delegates from 100 countries to achieve the ambitious goals that have been set for the global lung health agenda. It will focus on how to accelerate toward elimination on multiple fronts including tuberculosis (TB) and co-infections, improving tobacco control and reducing air pollution”
