Professor Dame Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer

Limiting our ability to treat infections alongside placing global food security and agricultural livelihoods at risk, antimicrobial resistance (AMR) poses a substantial threat to the global population.  AMR is a natural phenomenon but it is accelerated through human actions and we therefore all have a role to play in addressing it.

In her talk, Dame Sally will discuss the complexity and impact of AMR, the risk it poses to modern medicine, and the actions needed to mitigate this threat, in particular by those within the healthcare profession.
