The Stop TB Partnership Announcement - 25 October 2019
The Stop TB Partnership at the 50th Union World Conference on Lung Health

The Stop TB Partnership will soon be on its way to Hyderabad, India, for the 50th World Conference on Lung Health. Through our participation at the conference, we aim to foster innovation, human rights, and universal access to tuberculosis (TB) diagnostics and medicines. We’ll be addressing global TB issues and national TB responses by meeting with civil society, National TB Program managers, lawyers, the private sector and other TB stakeholders. And most importantly, we’ll celebrate global TB CHAMPIONS, who have achieved remarkable progress in the fight against TB. 

We are organizing and co-hosting a series of meetings and events around the conference, check out below our comprehensive roadmap outlining events, meetings, and sessions in chronological order.


Please visit us at our booth to learn more about our efforts in ending TB.  Booth ?? A3301-3302, Hall 4
