Thank you for meeting us at the Union World Conference

The Union World Conference on Lung Health was held from 20 to 24 October and at KNCV, we were very excited to be part of it! The program was outstanding with urgent TB subjects, of which many in the light of a joint response to the COVID19 pandemic. For the first time, we met many of you – our TB colleagues, partners and funders – virtually instead of in and around the conference rooms: an inspiring event!

Over 50 KNCV delegates attended the Union Conference, and 22 KNCV presented their abstracts. You can find the complete overview in the KNCV at the Union Conference schedule.

Thank you for meeting us at the conference and look forward to seeing you again!
