On June 5-7, 2019, the regional JPIAMR workshop Experiences and Areas of Interest for Strengthening Antimicrobial Resistance Networks was held at the Science Cultural Centre in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The workshop had excellent results in terms of attendance, subjects covered and impact on national, regional and global AMR networks and groups.

Next steps and activities:

  • Information sessions (INFODAYS) will be held throughout the year for researchers and other stakeholders about JPIAMR and H2020 calls on this subject that are open to third countries.
  • In line with the conversations held between producers and other AMR players, further joint meetings and activities will be held to identify the problems faced by everyone on this issue.
  • Participation in all AMR dissemination and awareness activities through the available internal and external channels. Likewise, world awareness days, such as the World Microbiome Day on 27 June, will be taken advantage of by publishing posts and articles on AMR.
  • Joint activities with other areas of government will be planned, to present AMR efforts in dissemination fairs with great geographic coverage, such as TECNÓPOLIS and TECNÓPOLIS FEDERAL, and other activities achieved through the Linkage area.
