2nd Antimicrobial resistance course (AMR): a One Health challenge

After the success of its inaugural edition in 2019, the second edition of the AMR Course will take place from 8:30am on Monday, November 9 to 4:00pm on Friday, November 13, 2020 at the Les Pensières Center for Global Health.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a growing global public health menace that threatens the prevention and treatment of bacterial diseases. The AMR-Global Action Plan (GAP) by WHO (World Health Organization) and One Health global strategy consider fostering awareness and understanding on antimicrobial resistance to be a priority and essential for the adoption, deployment and implementation of country AMR-National Action Plans (AMR-NAPs).

To support this critical effort, the Mérieux Foundation and the Université de Paris have joined their expertise and capacities to support the AMR-GAP by designing a course to address concretely -from plan to action- the five objectives of the AMR-WHO-GAP. Together, the Mérieux Foundation and Université de Paris propose a residential intensive training course on AMR in a One Health perspective, principally targeting audiences from low- and middle-income countries.
