Reflections from a week where stakeholders took the stage in New York

Stakeholders from around the world were invited to a hearing at the UN building in New York to share perspectives, expectations and recommendations towards the UN High-level meeting on AMR. ReAct was represented  by ReAct Africa Director, Professor Mirfin Mpundu, and ReAct Europe Director, Ms. Anna Sjöblom. Here we share our reflections on what the hearings offered and the dynamics around the process.

Rocky start for the UN High level meeting on AMR

ReAct’s Otto Cars and Helle Aagaard travelled to New York to meet a number of country UN missions, UN agencies and civil society actors to discuss ReAct’s United Nations High-Level Meeting on AMR Policy Brief. Here we share our key reflections from a week of conversations and discussions at the epicenter of global politics about the prospects for the forthcoming High-Level Meeting on AMR in September.

UN High Level Meeting on AMR: Countdown begins

Preparatory work is currently underway for the one-day High-Level Meeting on Antimicrobial Resistance planned this fall, convened by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). The High-Level Meeting aims to secure strong political commitment and accelerated action across all sectors and at all levels to address the urgent threat of antimicrobial resistance.

Why communities and civil society groups are key to the global AMR response

The upcoming High Level Meeting on AMR at the UN General Assembly in September 2024 presents a pivotal opportunity to address the pressing issue of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), identified by the WHO as one of the ten threats to global health.

As world leaders convene to discuss strategies and solutions, it is imperative that the involvement of communities and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in the global AMR response is given full recognition and prioritized as a key component of any effective plan moving forward.
