Annual TB Conference: The Union - NAR

The Annual Union-North America Region's (NAR) TB conference is organized by the BC Lung Association. We serve as Conference Secretariat and sit on the NAR Conference Executive Committee.  

24th Annual Conference of The Union-North America Region

Join us in Chicago for End TB 2020: the 24th Annual Conference of The Union-NAR. Our expert planning committee has brought together an exciting lineup of speakers to discuss the current critical issues in tuberculosis care and prevention. You'll learn about the efforts to achieve TB elimination, practical issues in LTBI treatment, results of the latest TB Epidemiologic Studies Consortium findings on pediatric and adult LTBI diagnosis.

A highlight of this year's conference will be a symposium devoted to special challenges of addressing TB in the Caribbean region. We are also pleased to include keynote addresses from Dr. Guy Marks, the incoming President of The Union, from Dr. Ariel Pablos-Mendez on the role of universal health coverage in TB care, and from Dr. Salmaan Keshavjee speaking on neoliberalism, global health and other human rights issues in TB care.
