Lung health experts from around the world will gather in Paris, France, for the Union World Conference on Lung Health to share the latest scientific evidence on respiratory health topics such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), COVID-19, tuberculosis (TB), tobacco control and more.


Every day, patients with a cough have to decide where to seek care. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the critical need for accessible, comprehensive, coordinated and continuous health care, especially for vulnerable populations.


FHI 360 works to ensure access to quality respiratory health services wherever people choose to seek care by strengthening health care systems and addressing health challenges with innovative solutions that can be replicated and scaled. At the conference, FHI 360 will lead satellite sessions and present oral abstracts and e-posters to share the latest evidence generated by our research and programmatic implementation efforts.


Follow FHI 360 on social media to learn more about our work and visit our exhibition booth (A3312) at the conference to meet our staff.

FHI 360 is mobilizing research, resources and relationships so people everywhere have access to the opportunities they need to lead full and healthy lives.
