On 5-7 June 2019 the JPIAMR regional workshop, Experiences and Areas of Interest for Strengthening Antimicrobial Resistance Networks, is held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, bringing together the best scientific community of Latin America within the field of AMR.
The main focus of this workshop is to follow up the results achieved at the regional workshop held in October 2017 in Santiago de Chile emphasising the presentation of specific regional initiatives and networks.
The goals of the workshop are to:
• Present the AMR status in Argentina and the region based on the One Health approach to exchange experiences and detect challenges currently prevailing in the region.
• Provide a space to generate exchanges between research groups, leading health institutions, regulators, productive sector and consumers, among others.
The goals of JPIAMR and international financing opportunities will also be presented.
The workshop is hosted by JPIAMR together with the Argentinian Ministry for Education, Culture, Science and Technology and the European Commission.
