Every year The Union presents a series of awards at the Union World Conference to honour outstanding contributions to lung health. The awards are an important and valued way to recognise the work being conducted around the world, from young researchers to lifetime achievers.
As the sponsor of a Union Award, you will be featured during the award presentation at a key session during the conference. Your organisation will be recognised wherever the awards are promoted, including the conference website, the conference programme, and the conference app.
Uniquely for conference sponsors, your organisation will also be recognised on the main Union website.
The Union Medal is The Union’s highest honour. It is awarded to Union members who have made an outstanding contribution to the control of tuberculosis or lung health by their scientific work and/or actions in the field.
The Union Young Investigator Prize acknowledges a researcher for work in lung health published in the past five years, when aged 35 years or younger.
The Union Scientific Prize acknowledges researchers at any stage of their career for work in lung health published in the past five years.
The Karel Styblo Public Health Prize acknowledges a health worker or a community organisation for contributions to tuberculosis control over a period of 10 years or more.
