Antibiotics Resistance

23 March 2023

WHO considers antibiotic resistance to be one of the biggest threats to global health, food security, and development today. Antibiotic resistance can affect anyone, of any age, in any country and occurs naturally, but misuse of antibiotics in humans and animals is accelerating the process.

Join us for a 90-minute fireside chat with Bill Burns, former CEO of Roche Pharma, to speak about the challenges of antibiotic resistance and potential mitigation strategies.
