On Monday 4 and Tuesday 5 February 2019, the Academy of Medical Sciences hosted a two-day meeting on antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

The meeting was organised as part of a wider programme of work which aims to strengthen the research links between the UK and India to jointly address the challenge of AMR. This programme has been generously supported by the Yusuf and Farida Hamied Foundation. The programme includes a second meeting in 2021 in India and an annual Visiting Professorship scheme which supports the travel and subsistence costs of UK researchers wishing to visit India to develop long-term collaborations in this field of biomedical research: AMS Hamied Foundation UK-India AMR Visiting Professorships.

Specifically, across the course of the two-day 2019 symposium, findings from collaborative research on the interactions of human health, animal health, and the environment were explored alongside the research and policy actions that have been taken in the UK and India to address this challenge. In addition, the symposium helped to identify areas for continued or future research that will impact on policy and action. Videos of the talks will be made available shortly on the Academy's YouTube Channel. 

 

If you have any questions about the event please contact Abigail Bloy, Policy Officer at the Academy of Medical Sciences (abigail.bloy@acmedsci.ac.uk). 

The programme is generously supported by the Yusuf and Farida Hamied Foundation.
