Antimicrobial Resistance Fighter Coalition Webinar: Responding to difficult-to-treat infections: Role and responsibilities of governments, researchers, clinicians, industry and patients
September 19, 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:
Governments, researchers, and industry partners around the world have mobilized to develop diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccines for COVID-19. The development of new recommendations and practices continue to be deployed to slow the spread of COVID-19. The burden of drug-resistant infections could surpass COVID-19. Drugs like antibiotics are a vital tool for modern medicine, used to prevent and treat infections. As drug-resistant infections are becoming more common, modern medicine as we know it is at risk and much like COVID-19, it has the potential to overwhelm our healthcare structure. What changes are needed to reshape strategies for combatting antimicrobial resistance globally?
