Tackling antimicrobial resistance through safe, clean water and environmental health

Photo:

Far too little attention is given to the issue of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) and the way it spreads in our natural environment and water. How does it happen? What role do pollution and water quality play? How can safe Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) contribute to good health, preventing infections and reducing the needs for the use of antibiotics? We will explore solutions in this session.

The session will begin with introductory keynote speeches about environmental health and the role of WASH in the context of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR). Breakout groups will discuss specific issues:

• The role of WASH for preventing or limiting AMR.

• The environment as a vehicle and incubator for AMR and the interplay of various pollutants.

• Funding and incentive structures to strengthen mitigation measures.

• Policy, institutions and participation for coherent implementation.
