Collaboration with: The International Union Again Tuberculosis and Lung Disease

Fifteen international journalists will be selected for a six-day, all-expenses- paid fellowship in Berlin, Germany to attend the 41st Union World Conference on Tuberculosis and Lung Health and the Journalist to Journalist training on lung diseases. Special consideration will be given this year to applicants working in India, Russia, Egypt, China, Peru and Africa.

More than 10 million people each year die of lung diseases, yet public demand and political commitment remain inadequate to effect significant change. The sessions will feature presentations and discussions with experts on tuberculosis, childhood pneumonia, COPD, TB/HIV co-infection, and more. The fellowships include three days of training in advance of the conference and daily guidance on coverage throughout the conference.
