[Event Report] Making the ‘Silent Pandemic’ of AMR Heard: What Countries Leading the Charge Against AMR are Doing to Ensure their Populations are Protected (April 28, 2022)

On April 28, 2022, AMR Alliance Japan (Secretariat: Health and Global Policy Institute) held a symposium gathering experts from Japan and other countries that are leading the way in the fight against AMR. Participants from Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States discussed each country’s AMR response, and possibilities for future collaborations in this space.

This symposium shared international best practices for stronger policy responses against AMR as well as trends of policy discussions on this issue. Moving forward, AMR Alliance Japan and HGPI will continue to work to make the ‘silent pandemic’ of AMR heard.

Full report will be available in due course.
