One health aspects of AMR

One health aspects of AMR and infections in Asia

 Asia Pacific Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infection (APSCMI) is a federation of infectious disease, microbiology and infection control societies in the Asia Pacific and a close partner of International Society of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (ISAC).

The COVID-19 pandemic is a stark reminder of the importance of One Health approach to combat major challenges in infectious diseases. For this webinar we have focused on One Health and emerging infections from the Asia Pacific.

Antimicrobial resistance is a slow-burn pandemic that cannot be solved without multisectoral One Health approach. Nipah virus and severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome (SFTS) caused by tick-borne Bandavirus are emerging viral infections of significant mortality in South and East Asia respectively.

This webinar brings experts from the Asia Pacific to share on these three areas to stimulate dialogue and collaboration in our international infectious disease community.
