The symposium is organised to mark the occasion of World Antimicrobial Resistance Awareness Week and aims to bring together clinicians,
researchers, industry experts and pharmaceutical sciences to create an environment for discussions on the topic and facilitate collaborative research.
World AMR Awareness Week was developed as a result of a global action plan adopted by several countries in 2015 to raise awareness and knowledge about AMR through effective communication, education and training. This year’s theme is “Preventing Antimicrobial Resistance Together”. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has emerged as a global threat with several pathogens being resistant to most of the currently available antibiotics. The situation calls for urgent measures for discovery of newer drugs and therapeutics. According to WHO report 2022, novel antibiotics that target the critical priority pathogens continue to be insufficiently addressed. Discovery of novel therapeutics requires collaborative effort from multiple disciplines of Science.
