TB 2018 (July)
TB 2018 is an official pre-conference of the 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018). The meeting will take place Sunday, 22 July 2018, at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre, just prior to AIDS 2018.
It is co-hosted by the International AIDS Society (IAS) in collaboration with the Stop TB Partnership and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

The Union World Conference 2018 (Oct)
The 49th Union World Conference on Lung Health in The Hague, The Netherlands, will take place between 24 – 27 October 2018 and bring together researchers, global advocates, scientists, healthcare professionals, students and community members working on all aspects of lung health.
The conference theme, Declaring Our Rights: Social and Political Solutions, highlights that to eliminate TB and achieve the health-related Sustainable Development Goals requires a coordinated public health response driven by the human rights of each individual.
The deadline for submissions of abstracts, symposia, post-graduate courses and workshops is 17 April.
TSRU 2018 meeting (Oct)
The TSRU 2018 has been postponed from April to October 2018, to benefit from a proposed TB scientific pre-conference that will be organised preceding the Union Conference in The Hague (above).
Also this year, since TB 2018 will be organised (preceding the AIDS conference – above), the TSRU can be be aligned with one of these meetings.
A group of sessions will be available for TSRU, to maximize TSRU’s visibility. The conference dates, abstract deadlines and all other relevant practical information will be shared with the TSRU community shortly. Abstracts that have already been submitted will be considered for the conference in October.
