Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is gaining prominence on political and policy agendas. Resistance to drugs designed to treat bacterial, viral and parasitic infections is escalating dramatically thus posing a major threat to human health and what sustains it. The scope of AMR is global and reaches beyond the health sector. Organizations such as the World Health Organization, the World Organization for Animal Health and the Food and Agriculture Organization, and other international agencies are becoming increasingly concerned about the AMR threat.

Symposium participants will include key policy, academic and industry leaders that reflect the multi-disciplinary nature of the AMR problem and the need to promote the development of collaborative policy frameworks to address this global health security challenge.

This event is being held in partnership with Murdoch University. Please note that the location for this event is Murdoch University in Perth, Australia. All times are local.
