47th Union World Conference on Lung Health
Join MSH and our partners at the 47th Union World Conference on Lung Health in Liverpool, United Kingdom, October 26-29, 2016.

For 45 years, MSH has worked at all levels of the health system—with policymakers, health professionals, and communities—in more than 150 countries to strengthen health systems and improve the quality, availability, and affordability of health services. In response to the HIV and TB epidemics, we build the capacity of our public and private sector partners to prevent TB and HIV and improve diagnosis and management of co-infected patients.
Through collaboration with our country partners and national TB and AIDS control programs in 20 nations throughout Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean, we work to increase access to quality services and medicines. Some of our key interventions include developing policy guidelines to ensure TB and HIV patients receive the care they need, implementing standard operating procedures to guide health service delivery processes, and training and supervising local health workers to improve clinical care and management of patients co-infected with TB and HIV.
