As well as being a scientific institute, The Union has thousands of members in 147 countries around the world. From clinical researchers, university faculty, students, and health ministry officials to activists, advocates, nurses and allied health professionals, plus numerous global health organisations, Union members are leading the charge against TB and lung disease worldwide.

Tobacco control members’ working groups

Tobacco control members currently run three expert working groups [see below], each focussing on complex or emerging issues in tobacco control. Members of the tobacco control section join these groups in order to become part of an ongoing conversation with colleagues and peers across the globe who are tackling similar challenges. 

  • Countering tobacco industry interference in public health policies
  • Getting research into tobacco control policy at country and regional levels
  • TB, HIV and tobacco
