The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union) is a non-profit, non-governmental voluntary organization founded in 1920. Its members, organizations and individuals throughout the world, are dedicated to the prevention and control of tuberculosis and lung disease, to disseminating information about the hazards of smoking and to the promotion of overall community health
The Union has two official journals, the International Journal of Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (IJTLD) and Public Health Action (PHA).
The IJTLD covers all aspects of tuberculosis and lung health, including public health related issues such as training programmes, cost-benefit analysis, legislation, epidemiology, intervention studies and health systems research.
PHA aims to promote the vision of The Union, Health solutions for the poor, by disseminating new knowledge on health systems and health services for vulnerable groups, with a priority on tuberculosis, lung health, non-communicable diseases and related public health issues.
