One-Health Action to Preserve Antibiotics

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is a global public health threat today, and one that acquires more critical dimensions especially at a time where the world is fighting a pandemic. Due to their growing misuse and overuse, antibiotics are increasingly becoming ineffective. There is a pressing need to preserve them and this can best be done through concerted one-health action across the world.

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) invites you to a webinar to discuss the subject, as a part of its series of events to mark the World Antimicrobial Awareness Week 2020.

PLEASE NOTE
This is a free Zoom webinar, and registration is open to all. All those who register will receive an automatic confirmation. However, the webinar can accommodate a limited number of attendees on a first come-first served basis only. Therefore, please try to join 5 minutes before the scheduled time.

For any other details, please contact Sukanya Nair, sukanya.nair@cseindia.org/ 8816818864.
