EFFORT Partner, ANSES, is now preparing its annual symposium on Antimicrobial resistance in animal health and the environment. The event will take place in Paris on Tuesday 13 November 2018. This year the symposium will focus on current and future issues in epidemiology and modelling in antimicrobial resistance.
Like every other year, to mark European Antibiotic Awareness Day, on 13 November ANSES is holding its 9th annual symposium on this topic for all the stakeholders (scientific experts, public institutions, industry, associations, etc.).
This event will examine the current situation and will also take a look into the future of resistance to antibiotics and its implications for animal health, the environment and, by extension, human health. It is helping to mobilise the players concerned, in order to explore new measures to improve the use of antibiotics in veterinary medicine and limit their impact.
This symposium is fully in line with the implementation of the interministerial roadmap adopted on 18 November 2016, which aims to strengthen and coordinate efforts to combat antibiotic resistance more effectively in all sectors. The Agency's two annual reports on national trends in resistance in animals (Résapath report) and sales of veterinary antimicrobials will also be presented, as well as insights on different research strategies contributing to meeting current and future challenges on this major public health issue.
Please note that the programme will be online and registration will be open from October.
