Uppsala Health Summit on Antibiotic Resistance to follow decision by WHO


Shortly after the World Health Organization (WHO) global action plan on antibiotic resistance has been adopted in May 2015, researchers, politicians and representatives from public health organizations and the pharmaceutical industry will gather in Uppsala, Sweden, to discuss the most urgent next steps. The growing problem of antibiotic resistance, which compromises our ability to treat common infections, represents one of the greatest threats to public health and security worldwide.

In May, the World Health Assembly (WHA) will decide on a “Global action plan on antimicrobial resistance”. The plan was requested by the same assembly last year and since then the WHO and the member states have worked on a draft plan.

The growing problem of antibiotic resistance, which compromises our ability to treat common infections, represents one of the greatest threats to public health and security worldwide.

Dear all friends of the SANORD community. 

The organising committee follows the pandemic situation closely. Many of us in the SANORD community are now busy working around challenges and solutions for our respective campuses, and for many the work situation has been challenged by the situation. 

As of now, we plan to organise SANORD 2021 6-? September, as scheduled. We will, however, adjust if governmental and institutional advice informs us otherwise. This will be clarified at a later stage, and we will keep you updated here. 

We sincerely hope to see you in a healthy Bergen in September! 

Stay healthy,

The SANORD 2020 team
