From global to local: addressing the threat of AMR to STI control
9th - 10th January 2020
On 9-10th January 2020, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) is hosting a two-day conference, entitled: ‘From global to local: addressing the threat of AMR to STI control’.
This two-day conference will bring together experts working at the interface of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and STI research, policy and practice. Themes covered will include surveillance, treatment guidelines, new treatment initiatives, new diagnostic initiatives, antibiotic stewardship, and vaccines.
The aims of the conference are to:
• Develop a network to share knowledge and experiences of effective strategies and bottlenecks for tackling STI AMR, both locally and globally
• Identify bottlenecks and solutions for tackling STI AMR
• Develop a short- and long-term action plan on STIs and AMR
The conference is being organised by LSHTM’s STI Research Interest Group (STIRIG), co-hosted with and supported by LSHTM’s AMR Centre, Public Health England, Bristol Health Partners’ Sexual Health Improvement Programme Health Integration Team (SHIP), the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH), and the World Health Organization.
