AMR is a global threat. Infections that are treatable today are becoming life threatening again. Routine surgery becomes too risky to carry out. Illnesses considered minor in 2019 could cost 10 million lives every year by 2050. Addressing AMR will be key to achieving Universal Health Coverage and meeting the Sustainable Development Goals.
With AMR high on the political agenda, and at a time when Governments must develop and implement national, regional and global action plans, the global community now has a unique opportunity to accelerate its collective effort.
As GARDP redoubles its efforts to develop and deliver new treatments, you are invited to a lively discussion with public health leaders on what it will take to move plans into concrete actions that deliver practical and effective solutions globally.
The event will feature thought-provoking talks from international experts followed by a panel discussion and reception.
Date: Tuesday, 21 May 2019
Venue: International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, Geneva
This is an unmissable opportunity to hear from international AMR experts delving into one of today’s biggest health threats and to unite in advancing solutions for this pressing global concern. The talks and panel discussion will be followed by a reception.
As part of attending the event, you also have the opportunity to visit the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum.
