Digital Toolkit

We encourage our community of advocates and health workers to help us get the word out about the 51st Union World Conference on Lung Health. This toolkit is designed to guide communications efforts and promotion for all those willing to support us.


  • The 51st Union World Conference on Lung Health will take place in Seville, Spain, from 21 to 24 October 2020.
  • The conference theme is ‘Advancing Prevention’. Prevention is a key element to ending tuberculosis, reducing tobacco use and improving lung health worldwide. Yet prevention has previously been neglected as a research and operational priority in this sector.
  • As a host country Spain is playing an increasingly important role in the fight against TB. Last year the country pledged US $100 million over three years to The Global Fund To Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
  • Global health is also a priority of Spain’s international cooperation strategy. The country is a strong advocate of human rights and gender equity, fighting inequality, building stronger systems of health and advancing towards universal health coverage.
  • The conference theme resonates throughout all aspects of lung health, including air pollution, reducing the harm directly caused by tobacco use, and the impact of co-morbidities including HIV and diabetes.
