Each of us is now living in a world with a nearly untreatable virus—but COVID-19 is not the only threat that we are facing. Many bacterial and fungal infections that were previously considered treatable are no longer responding to the drugs designed to kill them. Through a four-part webinar series, global experts will discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic could reshape strategies for combating antimicrobial resistance (AMR) around the world.
Below is the schedule for the webinar series:
- The global movement of microorganisms: Tracking the spread of difficult-to-treat infections (Thursday, September 24, 2020, 9:00am EST)
- Prevention is stronger than a cure (Thursday, October 15, 2020, 9:00am EST)
- Aiming in the dark: What happens when disease spreads without diagnosis (Thursday, November 5, 2020, 9:00am EST)
- Responding to difficult-to-treat infections: Role and responsibilities of governments, researchers, clinicians, industry and patients (Thursday, November 19, 2020, 9:00am EST)
