When: June 20, 2017 - June 21, 2017 (9:00 AM Eastern)
Where: Keck Center • 500 Fifth St. NW, Washington, DC 20001

Topics Diseases, Global Health, Public Health
Activity: Forum on Microbial Threats
Board: Board on Global Health

While there has been some advancement in mitigating the threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), alongside political recognition, there continues to be many gaps in knowledge and major scientific and technological hurdles that still need to be addressed. Through a One Health approach, this workshop will examine the key areas in human, animal, and environmental health that contribute to the emergence and spread of AMR, and present the complexities and potential strategies of bridging the different sectors and disciplines—such as microbiology, agriculture, veterinary medicine, public health, environmental health, infectious diseases, and research and development of medical products—to counter this global threat. A key focus of the workshop will be to explore immediate and short term actions and research needs that will have the greatest impact on reducing AMR.

The workshop agenda, video archive, and speaker presentations are available under Other Meeting Resources.

This workshop is free and open to the public, but registration is required. The workshop will also be webcast, and all videos of the webcast recordings will be archived on the workshop website.
