Dr Joseph Aluoch named Honorary Member of The Union

Dr Joseph Aluoch was named an Honorary Member of The Union at the 48th Union World Conference on Lung Health held in Guadalajara, Mexico. 

The title of Honorary Member of The Union is granted to a person who has become distinguished through active participation in The Union's activities and the fulfillment of its goals. These members serve as informal advisors to The Union.

Dr Aluoch has been active in The Union since the mid-1970s when he was the Coordinator of the National TB Control Program in Kenya from 1975-1980. He was the African Congress President of The Union (called IUATLD at that time) in 1978-80. He has been named the “Father of Respiratory Medicine” in Kenya. He is clearly a long-term friend to The Union and advocate for the mission of The Union.
