21 June ReAct and South Centre hosted the webinar: The silent pandemic of antimicrobial resistance: New opportunities for global action? Learn more and look at webinar.
Antimicrobial resistance is a leading global health threat, yet the World Health Assembly this year (WHA75) did not review the existing Global Plan on AMR nor set new commitments.
ReAct and the South Centre hosted this event to discuss how the current renewed focus on strengthening preparedness and response to health emergencies can help leverage new global action on antimicrobial resistance. The webinar also explored synergies between key components of an effective new international instrument and efforts needed to address antimicrobial resistance.
- Will the new international instrument offer opportunities for a stronger response to antimicrobial resistance?
- What are we learning from national experiences from developing countries?
