The Union does that by conducting scientific research, working with governments and other agencies to translate research into better health for people around the world, and delivering projects directly in the field. For close to 100 years, it has been a leader in the fight against some of the world’s biggest killers, including tuberculosis, lung diseases and tobacco use.
