Antimicrobial Resistance Summit
The world is facing an imminent crisis of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The risk of returning to a pre-antibiotic era, as resistant infections become more common and more life-threatening, is very real.
The AMR summit, in London on March 26th asks why the global call to action on such a critical public good is now faltering, and how renewed energy and momentum might be unlocked in the global fight against AMR. We ask how new voices can help broaden the AMR cause—from responsible investment and retailing to environmental groups and a wider universe of advocates. We ask for action.
Confirmed speakers include:
- Marc Sprenger, director, antimicrobial resistance secretariat, World Health Organisation
- Martin Seychell, deputy director-general, Directorate-General for Health and Food Safety, European Commission
- David Heymann, head, centrefor global health security, Chatham House
