The prediction is that unless we take urgent action, ten million people each year could die from Antimirobrial Resistance (AMR) by 2050. Antimicrobial resistance is one of most pressing global health challenges we face today. 

It affects everyone, everywhere, regardless of income status or nationality. From misuse and overuse of antibiotics lack of clean water inadequate healthcare infrastructure, the causes of AMR are complicated and critical. 

Join us online for our virtual conference on Wednesday 6 November to mark International Pathology Day as we explore the rise of global Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR).  

International Pathology Day has been recognised by pathology and laboratory medicine institutions worldwide on International Pathology Day for over a decade. A day that marks the contribution and achievements of pathology and laboratory medicine services that address global health challenges and improve the health outcomes of global communities.
