The 49th Union World Conference on Lung Health

The 49th Union World Conference on Lung Health will take place in The Hague, The Netherlands, from 24-27 October 2018.

The conference theme, Declaring Our Rights: Social and Political Solutions, highlights that eliminating tuberculosis (TB) and achieving the health-related Sustainable Development Goals requires a coordinated public health response driven by the human rights of each individual.

Lung disease is more than a clinical condition. TB, air pollution, the tobacco industry and the many other threats to lung health, all thrive where rights do not. People everywhere, no matter who they are or where they live, have the right to health — to prevention, treatment and care.

The Union World Conference hosts a four-day scientific programme and serves as a vital meeting place for all those working on every aspect of lung health. Together with local hosts, KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation and The City of The Hague, the conference will provide a platform for the latest science and policy discussions that will inform public health measures grounded in human rights.
