Event Description

Public Release Webinar: Combating Antimicrobial Resistance and Protecting the Miracle of Modern Medicine

Antimicrobial medicines have driven a century of progress in health, lowering mortality from infectious disease and changing the risk calculation underlying surgery, cancer treatment, and many routine life events such as childbirth. Antimicrobial resistance threatens to undermine this progress. 

The National Academies consensus committee report Combating Antimicrobial Resistance and Protecting the Miracle of Modern Medicine describes the problem in the United States and globally, and sets out steps to better understand the burden of resistance, promote antimicrobial stewardship, preserve the useful life of antimicrobial medicines, and strengthen the pipeline for new medical products.
