What Should Low-and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) Focus on?

Event completed

Antibiotic resistance or antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a 'silent pandemic' which can impact health, food security, livelihood and attainment of sustainable development goals. Global action is gaining momentum against this silent pandemic. In September 2024, AMR will be discussed by UN member states at a High-level Meeting (HLM) during the General Assembly (UNGA) session. The world would be expecting an ambitious outcome, with bold and specific commitments for future action.

Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) are expected to be heavily impacted by AMR due to resource and capacity constraints; but the drivers of AMR as well as its potential solutions may vary in these settings. It is, therefore, critical that the HLM is adequately informed about the priorities of LMICs like India.

Recognising this, Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is organising a two-day workshop that will discuss and identify LMICs priorities for consideration at the HLM. It is expected to be attended by 40 global stakeholders, including those from 15 countries in Africa and Asia, including India.

Experts at the workshop will deliberate on relevant areas for LMICs, such as financing for national action plan implementation and antibiotic R&D, food systems transformation, antibiotic manufacturing discharges and most importantly, quantitative targets across One Health sectors, which member countries are expected to commit to at UNGA 2024.
