30-31 May 2019: Multi-country high-level meeting taking place on UHC and antimicrobial resistance (AMR)

Pursuing UHC and addressing the challenge of antimicrobial resistance

The World Health Organization (WHO) and world leaders are giving high priority to initiatives to make progress towards universal health coverage (UHC) and to address the challenge of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Governments, international agencies, and industry must work together at national, regional and global levels, so that actions to secure people’s access to effective treatment for common infections are aligned with efforts to reduce the risk of emerging AMR.

On 30-31 May 2018, the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) Public Health Network and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan, with technical input from the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), UK, are co-hosting a multi-country, high-level meeting focusing on the pursuit of UHC in the context of the effective management of infectious diseases and emerging AMR.
