On the 23 and 24 November 2017, the Society for Applied Microbiology will hold its 3rd Antimicrobial Resistance Conference in Charles Darwin House, London, in collaboration with the Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Royal Society of Chemistry.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the most important international issues for human and animal health and the global spread of AMR threatens to negate cures for infectious disease that began with the introduction of penicillin. Systematic misuse and overuse of antibiotics in human medicine and animal husbandry have put every individual at risk. The Society for Applied Microbiology joins the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences in responding to the global challenge to help tackle the AMR crisis.
The WHO Model Lists of Essential Medicines has been updated every two years since 1977.
The current versions are the 20th WHO Essential Medicines List (EML) and the 6th WHO Essential Medicines List for Children (EMLc) updated in March 2017.

7th Symposium in Antimicrobial Resistance in Animals and the Environment
The 7th ARAE – Symposium on Antimicrobial Resistance in Animals and the Environment will take place from 26 to 28 June 2017 in Braunschweig, Germany. This biannual conference is one of the most indicated scientific meetings in research on antimicrobial resistance (AMR). More than 250 international experts from all over the world will discuss recent developments in AMR, one of the most important One Health challenges in the world. WHO, OIE and FAO adopted global action plans to fight AMR, and this conference will address important issues regarding the development of AMR in animals and the environment.
ARAE 2017 – AMR in Animals and Environment
Within this year’s Call the EPA is seeking applications from multidisciplinary teams for a large-scale project (up to €650,000) focused on assessing the contribution of various sectors (healthcare, agriculture, industry, etc.) to the impact and persistence of AMR in the environment and developing sector-specific solutions to halt further spread.
