Antimicrobial Resistance in Bacterial Pathogens
In collaboration with the National Hospital of Tropical Diseases (NHTD) and the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit (OUCRU), Hanoi, Vietnam, we are pleased to announce the 2019 overseas course in Antimicrobial Resistance of Bacterial Pathogens.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global public health emergency, and threatens the safe delivery of modern medical care. Global projections of the negative impact of AMR predict the loss of nearly 10 million lives, and a cumulative loss of global production up to 100 trillion US dollars by 2050. AMR requires immediate, concerted, international, collaborative action to monitor its prevalence and spread throughout the world. The importance of this has been recognised both by the United Nations, and by the World Health Organisation; the latter has published a list of priority pathogens and a global strategy for AMR surveillance.
