Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has been identified as one of the most urgent issues facing global health. LMIC will disproportionately be affected, because of the tremendous burden of infectious diseases coupled with critical gaps in diagnostic infrastructure, infection control, antimicrobial stewardship, regulatory access and governance.
This 1-day workshop will focus on resistance to antimicrobials and approaches to tackling misuse of antibiotics in different medical settings. The workshop format is a mix of plenary talks and panel discussions, with opportunities to interact with participants who work across the spectrum of the antimicrobial resistance space in different countries.
Clinicians, researchers, implementers, and health educators from both high-income and LMIC will share questions, successes, and lessons learned to advance the field of AMR.
