The South African Tuberculosis Vaccine Initiative has announced its participation in the 46th Union World Conference on Lung Health, which will be taking place in Cape Town from 2-6 December 2015.

Background to conference

This year 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 we will embark on together in the coming years. 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.
