Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) describes the ability of a microorganism like bacteria, viruses and some parasites to stop an antibiotic, antiviral drug or antimalarial drug from working. As a result, standard treatments for many serious diseases become ineffective, the infections persist and an increasing number of people are harmed. A subset of AMR is antibacterial resistance. This meeting will bring industry leaders together to discuss strategies in place to reduce AMR, learn about new diagnostics for identifying resistance early and consider novel candidates for treating these diseases, which are a major public health problem.
