Anti-microbial resistance continues to grow as a critical healthcare crisis globally. The number of deaths attributed to this epidemic is exponentially increasing, and most measures and policies to combat AMR are deemed insufficient.Since 2015, the World Anti-Microbial Resistance Congress has been the go-to conference globally for all stakeholders in the AMR space to meet, brainstorm ideas and formulate initiatives that can effectively tackle this pressing issue.

Industry leaders, innovative technology and solution providers, public authorities, international organizations, infectious disease clinicians, pharmacists and microbiologists are some of the 1,000+ attendees from over 50 countries who will gather virtually this October 2020 at the World Anti-Microbial Resistance Congress.

If you work in these key areas of AMR, then you must attend the World Anti-Microbial Resistance Congress 2020!
