Antimicrobial Resistance: The dystopia of an unsustainable development model

18 May 2022
20:00 - 21:30

Join us for a policy debate co-organized with SID, AMR Think-Do-Tank and Geneva Global Health Hub (G2H2).

Most conversations on Antimicrobial resistance blame patients or doctors for mishandling of antibiotics but this doesn't correspond to the systemic nature of the health crisis, the environment and the food chain. Attend our event as we unpack this further.
