On September 7, 2023, Dr. Susan Rogers Van Katwyk, Managing Director of the AMR Policy Accelerator, participated at the World Anti-Microbial Resistance Congress 2023 held in Philadelphia. The event, which brought together experts from all over the world in the field of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), witnessed Susan’s participation in two sessions.
Reducing Health Disparities through Strengthening Antimicrobial Stewardship
This Fireside Chat discussion centred on the critical topic of “Reducing Health Disparities by Strengthening Antimicrobial Stewardship.” The participants discussed the path toward more equitable healthcare practices in the fight against AMR.
The Pandemic Treaty and AMR – Next Steps
Following the Fireside, Susan took the stage to deliver a presentation titled “The Pandemic Treaty and AMR – Next Steps.” Her presentation delved into the intersection of pandemic preparedness and AMR mitigation, outlining a roadmap for future action.
Since 2015, the World Anti-Microbial Resistance Congress has been the go-to conference globally for all stakeholders in the AMR space to meet, brainstorm ideas and formulate initiatives that can effectively tackle antimicrobial resistance. As the 2023 congress draws to a close, the momentum generated by the attendees underscores the collective commitment to combat this critical global health challenge.
