After three years of virtual conferences, we are excited to announce that The Union World Conference on Lung Health 2023 will be held in person in Paris from 15-18 November.

During the period of the virtual conferences (2020 to 2022) we were able to make the Conference accessible to affected TB communities by offering free online registration and participation. We had hoped to be able to offer something similar for the WCLH 2023 and extend this to some speakers, as we did prior to 2020. However, this requires funding from sponsors.

At the present time, we have secured funding to cover the cost of some speakers in the “TBScience” stream, but we have not yet been successful in securing funding for full scholarships (registration, travel and accommodation) for any delegates or speakers for the main Conference. We are still working on this.

As much as we would like to offer scholarships to deserving candidates to attend the Conference, the current situation has made it impossible for us to do so. We understand the disappointment and frustration this may cause for many of you who were counting on our support, especially from low- and middle-income countries. We encourage you to explore other opportunities for financial aid.

We understand the impact that scholarships have on your professional growth, and we will remain committed to exploring alternative options to support you during these difficult times.

Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to be able to offer scholarships for the WCLH in the future. 

If you are representing a media outlet, you can apply for a sponsored full pass ticket which will grant you access to the venue during the Conference days. To be eligible please upload ONE document, containing 3 recent samples of work in your registration user profile. You will receive a confirmation letter stating if your application is accepted or refused.

For French visa information please visit France-visas 

You may need a business Schengen travel visa if you are a citizen of a non-EU country. A Schengen visa is a short-stay visa that allows a delegate to travel to any country members of the Schengen Area.  

All the delegates who need to apply for a visa will be provided with a visa support invitation letter from our Registration Team upon request.

The visa support letter does not guarantee an entry visa to France or Schengen zone and does not financially oblige the WCLH in any way.  

Delegate registration details may be shared with the immigration authorities to assist in the visa application process. However, The Union will not contact embassies and consulates on behalf of delegates.  

If you need a visa letter, you must follow the next steps: 

  • Register for the WCLH 2023
  • Pay the registration fee in full 
  • Get your registration and payment confirmation letter sent to your registration account/email  

In case the visa cannot be issued, the registration fee minus a handling fee (25%) will be refunded after the Conference ONLY. This will apply if the visa was requested on time and proof is provided that the visa could not be issued. Refund requests along with the requested proof of visa denial must be sent to, no later than 10 October 2023. Refund requests received after that date cannot be accepted.  

Important information 

All orders regardless of their origin are only payable in Euros. Upon receipt of your order and payment, you will receive your order confirmation by email. 

Booking confirmation will be sent 10 days before the event and final entrance passes need to be collected at the registration counters at the venue.
