The COVID-19 pandemic has brought into sharp focus the impact of pandemics. The novel coronavirus has claimed more than a million lives, trillions of dollars have been lost, expenditures cut and international efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals put in jeopardy.
COVID-19 has demonstrated pandemic preparedness requires a global coordinated effort, and no country can do it alone. Strengthening our ability to fight the silent pandemic of drug-resistant infections must also ensure affordable access to vital health tools, including new and improved treatments. This webinar will focus on how we can apply the lessons learned from COVID-19 to tackle drug resistance and ensure access to appropriate antibiotics.
The presentations were followed by a Q&A session.
This live webinar including interactive Q&A session was broadcast on 4 March 2021.
