46th Union World Conference on Lung Health

The 46th Union World Conference on Lung Health will take place in Cape Town, South Africa, from 2 to 6 December 2015.

The 2015 conference theme is “A New Agenda: Lung Health Beyond 2015”.

The conference theme is “A New Agenda: Lung Health Beyond 2015”, which reflects the changing landscape of global public health, and the new era of action that the community will embark on in the coming years.

When the World Conference convenes in Cape Town, the Millennium Development Goals era will be ending
 as a new development agenda takes hold, 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.

And as the use of e-cigarettes become increasingly widespread, they will continue fundamentally transforming the tobacco control landscape.

The five-day scientific programme will address how
these new agendas will influence the inter-related fights against tuberculosis, HIV, lung disease and non- communicable diseases, as well as the global campaign for tobacco control. Leaders from around the world will get together and identify solutions for achieving success in the post-2015 era of global health and development.
