Antimicrobial Resistance is now one of the major threats to public health. This is a multifaceted problem that comprises multidrug resistant bacteria and fungi, in the hospital environment or in the community; resistance to antiretroviral drugs; resistance of malaria parasites to antimalarial drugs; emerging resistance to insecticides that hamper the control of several vector-borne diseases. To fight it, it is imperative to build joint actions that bring together human and animal medicine and the environment.
The Global Health and Tropical Medicine R&D Centre (GHTM, IHMT-NOVA) joins once more the initiatives from the World Health Organization; World Antibiotic Awareness Week (18 – 24 November) and from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control; European Antibiotic Awareness Day (18 November) with a session on this topic. In this meeting, GHTM researchers and collaborators will present their work and discuss how the research developed at GHTM is contributing to the global fight against Antimicrobial Resistance.
Join us at the Third GHTM Antimicrobial Resistance Awareness Day!
