The Union World Conference on Lung Health is the worlds largest gathering of doctors, healthcare providers, policy makers, researchers and lawyers who are committed to prevent suffering from long diseases. In 2018 the 49th edition took place at World Forum The Hague. During the congress the 1.500 delegates could attend different sessions, workshops and lectures.

The Hague, city of Peace & Justice

The team of the Union World Conference ‘Declaring our rights: Social and Political Solutions’ connected well with the image of the city The Hague: city of Peace & Justice. The location of World Forum The Hague in the international zone, where science, law and politics come together, was perfect.

With the theme the congress wanted to express that sustainable healthcare related development goals and a coordinated reaction on public healthcare are necessary to tackle lung diseases.
