Call to Action on Antimicrobial Resistance
November 19, 2018 @ 8:00 am - November 20, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Wellcome Trust is to co-host a second global conference to help drive pioneering action to stop the rise and spread of superbugs. The two-day Call to Action, taking place in Accra this November, is co-hosted with the governments of Ghana and Thailand, and the United Nations Foundation, and is organized in partnership with the Inter-Agency Coordination Group (IACG) on Antimicrobial Resistance.
Health representatives from national governments and agencies, civil society, the private sector and global philanthropies will be invited to come together at the Call to Action to focus on how to address the most critical gaps in tackling the development and spread of drug-resistant infections.
Attendees include Kevin Outterson, Executive Director of CARB-X.
