The 5th conference of the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union), Europe Region, will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, between 27 and 30 May 2009.
The tradition of hosting top level conferences continues, as the city of Dubrovnik organized in 1988 the first congress of the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease ever convened outside Paris.
You will be exposed to a stimulating scientific and educational programme, during which all fields of tuberculosis and respiratory medicine will be covered by world renowned experts.
Dubrovnik, the heart of historical Croatia, is the pearl of the Adriatic Sea, hosting every year millions of tourists from all over the world. Its central position in Europe and the good connections with the main European capitals, allows Dubrovnik to bridge ideally Eastern and Western Europe.
With its ancient history, magnificent landscape and delicious cuisine, Dubrovnik is the ideal place to get inspiration and energy necessary to fight respiratory diseases.
We look forward to welcoming you all to our congress and we invite you to discover Dubrovnik and all that it has to offer.
