We are facing a world without antibiotics – who takes responsibility?

Antibiotic resistant bacteria are increasing and spreading at an alarming speed. The bacterial evolution is overwhelming our antibiotic defense. More and more bacteria are becoming resistant to antibiotics resulting in fatal consequences for millions of people. We need common action and responsibility for the development of new effective antibiotics and to stop antibiotic misuse.
Welcome to a press briefing on antibiotic resistance and listen to the big challenges that our community is facing!

Date: Thursday July 12 at 7.45-8.45 a.m. Breakfast is served from 7.45 a.m.
