The Asia Pacific Region of the International Union Against TB & Lung Disease (The Union) extends you a very warm welcome to the 5th Conference of The Union Asia Pacific Region. The conference will be held in Sydney, Australia from the 31st August to the 2nd September, 2015. The venue for the conference is the Hilton Hotel situated in the centre of the city, relatively close to the impressive Sydney Harbour and the many attractions that Sydney has to offer.
The theme of the conference is to reduce the burden of TB and Lung Disease in our region, by increasing the number of regional partnerships and expanding our existing partnerships.
The Conference will showcase up-to-date information and feature many of our Region’s leading researchers and clinicians in the area of TB & Lung Disease. Plenary sessions, symposia, oral presentations, poster sessions, breakfast sessions and workshops will provide a wide range of forums for attendees to hear about new developments, present their work, to meet with colleagues and to explore new partnerships. The Conference program will inspire solutions for the pressing challenges for the future management of TB & respiratory disorders in the Asia Pacific Region.
Numerous pre- and post-conference tours will be available for delegates to explore a diverse range of exciting activities and venues in Australia.
Please join us at this important meeting to progress our collaborative management of TB and respiratory disease in our Asia Pacific Region.
We look forward to your participation in this Conference.
