44th Union World Conference on Lung Health
Health systems stengthening drives our response to the tuberculosis epidemic. In over 30 countries MSH is working with international, national, and local partners to strengthen the capacity of health systems, national TB programs, and health managers to improve the lives of those affected by TB and prevent the spread of disease. Our work addresses all elements of the health system: service delivery; leadership and governance; medical products, vaccines, and technologies; health financing; health information; and human resources. MSH supports universal access to treatment, care, and prevention for all, but especially for the world's poorest and most vulnerable people.
More than 40 MSH staff from both the home and field offices will travel to Paris, France to participate in the 44th Union World Conference on Lung Health. MSH will co-host a workshop with the Global Drug Facility, lead a post-graduate course on the use of data for decision-making, speak at six symposia, and present more than 20 posters.
In addition, the Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) Program will launch QuanTB, a downloadable medicine management tool that transforms complicated quantification and forecasting calculations into a user-friendly dashboard.
