Design contest for first global Antibiotic Resistance Symbol

A design contest to find the first global Antibiotic Resistance symbol has been launched today by the European Union Joint Action on Antimicrobial Resistance and Healthcare-Associated Infections (EU-JAMRAI). The contest is not about creating another logo, it should be something tangible that can be crafted by anyone and worn by everyone; like the AIDS ribbon. Be a changemaker and take part in the contest or encourage the public to participate!

One Health in Focus when EU-JAMRAI Interviews JPIAMRs Laura Marin

In the latest newsletter form EU-JAMRAI, Laura Marin, JPIAMRs Head of Secretariat, is interviewed. The topic is international AMR initiatives and the need of a One Health Approach.

This fits well with JPIAMR’s focus. Our Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda is based on a One Health approach, and the initiatives created by JPIAMR is often centered on global collaboration and coordinating public AMR funding.

The interview was made earlier this year at ECCMID in Spain.
