UN meeting calls for more action, less talk, on antimicrobial resistance

  30 April 2021

Global health officials, scientists, members of nongovernmental organizations, and leaders from United Nations (UN) member states met today to reaffirm their commitment to tackling antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

The High-Level Interactive Dialogue on AMR, originally scheduled for April 2020 but postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, comes 5 years after the UN General Assembly held a high-level meeting to address AMR. That meeting concluded with commitments from UN member states to develop and implement national AMR action plans, as called for by the World Health Organization (WHO).
