Welcome message from Conference Chair and Co-Chair

Welcome to the 8th SA TB conference and thank you for joining us!

 

With 2025 set as a year for crucial milestones in the WHO’s End TB Strategy and the National Development Plan (NDP) 2030, we gather at a significant time for TB control. The 2022 conference focused on working together to get TB control back on track after the impact of COVID-19. National and international stakeholders heeded the call, and we have witnessed improvements and new developments in many areas of TB control. While we have made progress, many gaps and challenges still remain. Revoking the words of former President Nelson Mandela, “After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb,” and building on past work, we now set our sights on climbing the next set of hills with increased urgency to achieve the milestones to end TB disease and deaths, under the theme Accelerating progress to end TB.

The conference scientific committee has put together an exciting and comprehensive programme. The plenary and parallel sessions, symposia, roundtables, debate session, posters, and all other proceedings will purposefully cover diverse aspects of TB and TB control. We look forward to robust engagements, learning from each other, and a renewed sense of purpose and recommitment to effectively addressing the TB burden in South Africa.

 

May we have a wonderful and worthwhile convening!


Best wishes,
