Antimicrobial Resistance Fighter Coalition Webinar: Prevention is stronger than a cure
October 15, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
AMR in the Light of COVID-19 – A Webinar Series
Each of us is now living in a world with a nearly untreatable virus – but COVID-19 is not the only threat that we are facing. Many bacterial and fungal infections that were previously considered treatable are no longer responding to the drugs designed to kill them. COVID-19 foreshadows a grim future if we do not mobilize a global response to the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Through a four-part series, global experts will discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic could reshape strategies for combating antimicrobial resistance around the world.
About this Webinar:
Preventing drug resistant infections reduces the use of antibiotics and improves patient outcomes. Infection control practices, from simple hand-washing to global vaccination, and the use of effective infection prevention measures are key tools to combat COVID-19 and AMR. How has the COVID-19 pandemic informed our infection prevention efforts for healthcare systems and individuals around the world?
