Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a silent, slow-moving pandemic with potentially devastating effects on global health and national economies. It is a challenge that requires an “all hands on deck” approach, through global commitments and national, multi-sectoral action plans – including behavioural change. How do we move from words to action and implement sustainable solutions?
In March 2021, we arranged our first digital Uppsala Health Summit. The summit, which was attended by over 600 participants from 72 countries, resulted in an impressive collection of knowledge and policy recommendations that we have compiled in a compendium of briefs. Download the full report, or view separate briefs from each workshop.
In this webinar we will discuss some of the conclusions from our summit.
