As of 2017, the Tuberculosis Branch has gone through 80 years of ups and downs and has played an important role in the prevention and treatment of tuberculosis in my country. In the 80 years since its founding, the Tuberculosis Branch has consistently held high the banner of business development and talent training, and has carried out a lot of work in the clinical diagnosis and control of tuberculosis. The Tuberculosis Branch always attaches great importance to the cultivation of talents, and the past directors have made talent cultivation one of the key tasks. At the annual meeting of the Tuberculosis Branch, it is to create opportunities for young people. Thanks to the efforts of the Tuberculosis Branch, in recent years, a large number of young talents have grown rapidly and become the backbone of the discipline, which also brings hope and vitality to the future development of the Tuberculosis Branch.
