ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Successful prevention and treatment of TB in South and South East Asia and the Western Pacific region is critical to global efforts to eliminate the disease. Infectious diseases, such as TB, have become more concentrated in socially and economically disadvantaged groups during the social and economic progress accompanying the accelerated process of globalization in many countries in the region. In order to eliminate TB by 2050, it necessary to explore new ideas, new dialogues, and new policies. In addition to advances in diagnosis, treatment and patient management strategies, it is critical that vulnerable groups have greater access to TB prevention, treatment and care services. This is particularly important to addressing the problem of MDR-TB, which is a growing concern in the region and across the world.

关于本次会议

东南亚和西太平洋地区的结核病控制工作,很大程度上影响着全球消除结核病目标的实现。在全球化进程的推动下,各国社会和经济发展的进一步加快,肺结核这样的传染病更多地集中于社会和经济上的弱势群体中流行。要实现世界卫生组织在2050年前全面消除肺结核的目标,需要进一步探索解决肺结核问题的新想法、新对话和新政策。除了新的诊断技术、治疗方法和患者管理策略,从法律、社会、经济的角度的探讨结核病的预防和治疗,将有助于帮助处于弱势中的患者更好地获得结核病控制服务。在全世界范围内和该地区,MDR-TB的问题也越来越受到关注。本次会议将就这个非常重要的疾病控制议题展开国际对话和交流。
