Home ERS Respiratory Channel Tuberculosis research and investment – lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted much of the research and development done in the field of tuberculosis (TB) prevention, diagnostics, and treatment measures, as well as shifted the focus away from TB care.
On World TB Day (24 March) the MEP Lung Health Group shone a light on this important issue with the free event, ‘Tuberculosis research and investment – lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic’, hosted by MEP Manuel Pizarro (S&D, Portugal, and co-chair of the MEP Lung Health Group).
Organised in collaboration with the Global TB Caucus and TB Europe Coalition, the event was chaired by Dr Raquel Duarte, Secretary of ERS Assembly 10 (Respiratory infections), who was joined by an expert line-up of speakers.
