For the first time, the upcoming International AIDS Conference will feature a dedicated hub for discussing the deadly duo of TB-HIV. Despite TB's status as the leading killer of people with HIV, responses to these two diseases are often disconnected, and collaboration on HIV and TB programs is weak in many places.
Registration is now open for 45th World Conference on Lung Health, the world’s largest gathering of clinicians and public health workers, health programme managers, researchers and advocates working to end suffering caused by lung disease. With a record number of abstract submissions—including more focused on tobacco control than ever before—this year’s conference will feature the very best in science and advocacy on tuberculosis, TB-HIV, tobacco and other lung health issues as they impact people living in low- and middle-income countries. If you’re involved in any area of lung health, this is THE conference you don’t want to miss!
