Combating Antimicrobial Resistance: A One Health Approach to a Global Threat

June 20 – 21
KECK CENTER
WASHINGTON, DC
REGISTRATION
(THIS EVENT WILL BE LIVE WEBCAST)

On June 20-21, 2017, the Forum on Microbial Threats will host a public workshop, Combating Antimicrobial Resistance: A One Health Approach to a Global Threat. The workshop will examine the key areas in human, animal, and environmental health that contribute to the emergence and spread of antimicrobial resistance through a One Health approach, and present the complexities and potential strategies of bridging the different sectors and disciplines—such as microbiology, agriculture, veterinary medicine, public health, environmental health, infectious diseases, and research and development of medical products—to counter this global threat. A key focus of the workshop will be to explore immediate and short term actions and research needs that will have the greatest impact on reducing antimicrobial resistance.

Workshop speakers and discussants will contribute perspectives from government, academia, private, and nonprofit sectors at the global, national, and local levels. This two-day workshop will be held at the Keck Center in Washington, DC.
