Date & Time:

As recently detailed in the The Lancet, drug-resistant bacteria kill 1.27m people annually, more than HIV and malaria combined. Deaths are disproportionately concentrated in low- and middle-income countries, especially in children under 5 years old. Sustainable Development Goals are threatened by this ongoing toll. It is evident that determined and well-coordinated international actions are needed to tackle this global health threat from a One Health perspective. While antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is often seen as a technical issue of drug development, solutions to this problem will require serious engagement with those working in the social sciences. Hence, this Workshop.
Participation in the workshop is free of charge and open for all.
