Antimicrobial Resistance Course (AMR):
|After the success of its inaugural edition in 2019, the second edition of the AMR Course will take place from November 9 - 13, 2020 at 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 University Paris-Diderot (UPD) 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 UPD propose a residential intensive training course on AMR in a One Health perspective, principally targeting audiences from low- and middle-income countries.
The course advocates for the value of the One Health approach to fight against AMR, and builds capacity for critical decision-making in the developing world through education, partnerships and networks.
