This year’s National Health Sciences Research Symposium – Antimicrobial Resistance: An Opportunity to Transform Global Health – will support global initiatives to take a broad, coordinated approach to address the root causes of AMR across multiple sectors, especially human health, animal health and agriculture.
AMR control is closely linked to infection prevention in the community and requires commitment from all sectors.
The symposium programme will include satellite symposia, workshops, abstract and poster sessions, and plenary sessions highlighting public health issues, technological innovations, and notable operational, basic and translational research.
The symposium will facilitate intersectoral crosstalk between different sectors involved in AMR and will also raise awareness among the general public, media and policymakers about the importance of multisectoral collaboration between government sectors, academia and industry.
On the occasion, national and international speakers will also talk about the social, environmental and organic drivers of AMR, and what immediate actions are required to prevent and manage AMR in Pakistan and the region.
Participants will have the opportunity to interact with leading professionals, network with like-minded people, promote research ideas, share creative and innovative strategies whilst attending several scientific tracks.
