Its denomination was changed on 20 September 1989 to become the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union). The Union has as its mission the prevention and control of tuberculosis and lung disease, as well as related health problems, on a world wide basis, with a particular emphasis on low income countries. Its goal is to promote national autonomy within the framework of the priorities of each country by developing, implementing and assessing anti-tuberculosis and respiratory health programmes.”
