The silent antimicrobial resistance pandemic calls for a concerted global response – but what needs to be done?

The repeated abuse of antibiotics has triggered a silent pandemic that now poses a threat to global health.

How do we scale up the measures to a global and coordinated One Health response? 

The event is being arranged by the Swedish International Agricultural Network Initiative (SIANI) at the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and ReAct – Action on Antibiotic Resistance.

Venue: Medelhavsmuseet, Fredsgatan 2, Stockholm
