The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease is accepting applications for the 2016 Karel Styblo Public Health Prize.
The annual prize acknowledges a health worker (physician or lay person) or a community organization for contributions to tuberculosis control over a period of ten years or more. The award consists of a full fellowship to attend the Union World Conference on Lung Health (including full delegate badge, travel, accommodation, and per diem), a $2,000 cash award, and a certificate presented at the conference. Honorees may request that the fellowship portion of the award be used for a delegate who would not otherwise be able to attend the conference.
See the union website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
