Lung Health Meeting Features Advocacy, Community Building In Addition To Scientific Presentations, Following International AIDS Conference Model

ScienceInsider: TB community borrowing a page from HIV/AIDS
“…The traditionally staid 46th Union World Conference on Lung Health featured hundreds of delegates donning face masks during one session to show their solidarity against the rampant stigma that people with TB must endure. … The Lung Meeting has morphed into the type of gathering that international HIV/AIDS meetings pioneered, where advocacy and community building are as much a part of the agenda as scientific presentations…” (Cohen, 12/8).
