Antibiotic Guardian, London

24 February 2016, London

The UK 5 Year Antimicrobial Resistance Strategy 2013 to 2018, focuses on antibiotics and sets out actions to slow the development and spread of antimicrobial resistance.  This is supported by the Public Health England Antibiotic Guardian pledge Campaign, that calls on everyone in the UK, the public and healthcare community to become antibiotics guardian by choosing one simple pledge about how they will make better use of these vital medicines.

In support of the above Public Health England is hosting Antibiotic Guardian London.  The programme for the meeting is below – already attracting a range of influential speakers.   Please join us as we continue to address and identify solutions to the challenges that antimicrobial resistance poses.
