Digital Toolkit

We encourage our community of advocates and health workers to help us get the word out about the 50th Union World Conference on Lung Health. This toolkit is designed to guide communications efforts and promotion for all those willing to support us.

Background

  • The 50th Union World Conference on Lung Health will take place in Hyderabad, India, from 30 October to 2 November 2019.
  • The conference is expecting to see 6,000 researchers, global advocates, scientists, healthcare professionals, students and community members working on all aspects of lung health.
  • The conference theme, ‘Ending the Emergency: Science, Leadership, Action’, focuses on what is needed to ensure commitments become action, and that lifesaving targets are met.
  • As host country to the conference, India provides a unique backdrop to discussions on ending TB and lung disease with the current highest burden of TB in the world, and ambitious targets to eliminate TB by 2025.
  • The conference theme resonates strongly with TB, but it also raises awareness that all threats to lung health – TB, air pollution, tobacco and many more – are emergencies that our science, leadership and action needs to meet head on.
