Theme: Confronting resistance: fundamentals to innovations
Official Language(s): English
Our 2016 conference theme is "Confronting Resistance: Fundamentals to Innovations", which encompasses a number of critical areas for discussion ranging from the growing problem of resistance to existing TB drugs to the challenge presented by the powerful tobacco industry's resistance to efforts to control tobacco use. Most broadly, the theme is also the next natural step after 2015’s “New Agenda” – confronting resistance to the new ideas and challenges that this agenda introduces to governments, business, communities, the healthcare system and individuals.
We will be hosted by Liverpool, a dynamic city in the United Kingdom that has long been at the forefront of pioneering TB research through the world-famous Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.
