Making Quality Healthcare Affordable

IDA at the Union World Conference on Lung Health


The Union World Conference on Lung Health starts today in Cape Town, South Africa. The conference is the largest annual meeting focusing on tuberculosis and lung diseases. Each year delegates from over 125 countries gather for this five-day scientific conference. IDA Foundation has attended the conference for many years. We also have an exhibition booth, giving visitors the opportunity to meet with our representatives. This year we can be found at booth 45. 

“A New Agenda: Lung Health Beyond 2015”
This year’s conference theme is “A New Agenda: Lung Health Beyond 2015”. This theme reflects the changing landscape of global public health, and the new era of action for the coming years for all organisations active in the field of TB. As the Union World Conference starts in Cape Town, the Millennium Development Goals era will be ending, and a new development agenda takes over; guided by the Sustainable Development Goals. The World Health Organization’s new Global TB Strategy will be entering its first year of implementation, while the Stop TB Partnership’s Global Plan to Stop TB will shift into its next phase.
