Webinar: Addressing Antimicrobial Resistance Through the Pandemic Instrument
February 21, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
This moment provides an important opportunity for addressing the global threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
This month, the Intergovernmental Negotiating Body (INB) –– the entity established by the World Health Organization (WHO) to draft and negotiate a pandemic instrument –– will meet to consider and negotiate the zero draft of the WHO international instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness and response. This webinar will contribute to discussions on the pandemic instrument and the opportunity to comprehensively address the full range of pandemic threats, including AMR. AMR already kills over 1 million people annually and contributes to millions more deaths around the world – a toll that is disproportionately borne by LMICs.
Join us for a discussion and exchange inspired by the forthcoming Symposium Issue of the Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics (JLME) on Addressing Antimicrobial Resistance through the Pandemic Instrument, guest edited by Kevin Outtersen (Boston University, CARB-X) and Global Strategy Lab’s Susan Rogers Van Katwyk and Steven J. Hoffman. The webinar will feature a roundtable format, a panel of researchers and experts on AMR policy and will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
