Dear Colleagues,

It is my sincere pleasure to invite you to the 1st International Forum on Tuberculosis in Central and Eastern Europe, which will take place in Warsaw, Poland, from 4th to 6th November 2016.

With a death toll of 2 million people every year, TB ranks first as the cause of death among all infectious diseases known to afflict human population worldwide, surpassing even HIV/AIDS, malaria or influenza.

I would highly encourage you to take part in this conference, which is intended to provide an international platform for discussion and exchange of ideas on tuberculosis (TB). TB is the leading killer from a single infectious disease worldwide and drug-resistant TB is now threatening to erode all prior gains in global TB control. Indeed, TB is a real health threat for every major medical subspecialty. The conference targets at assessing challenges and achievements related to TB epidemiology in countries that struggle with a high TB caseload and drug resistance. I believe the conference will be of value to health care providers, public health stakeholders and scientists alike.

The problem of ТВ is of particular importance for Sub-Saharan Africa, where the disease is often associated with HIV infection. The presentation of modern achievements in ТВ epidemiology and а free exchange оf opinions between scientists will accelerate the distribution of knowledge on TB in Europe and will be useful for Africa and for the rest of the world as well.
