This is the second global conference on AMR that Wellcome Trust is co-hosting, this time together with the governments of Ghana and Thailand and the United Nations Foundation. The conference takes place in Accra on November 19-20. The Call to Action on AMR 2018, is organised in partnership with the Inter-Agency Coordination Group (IACG) on Antimicrobial Resistance, bringing together stakeholders and pioneering projects.

The Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR) is a growing global collaborative platform, with 27 nations working to curb antibiotic resistance (AMR) with a One Health approach. In that spirit, being a partner is a natural fit.

At the conference, JPIAMR is putting focus on the recently pre-announced AMR Call on Diagnostics and Surveillance. Being included, as a partner in the program and via activities within the conference, the call is communicated together with facts about JPIAMR.
