This conference will provide a first-time opportunity for stakeholders in the Euro-Mediterranean zone to discuss how antimicrobial resistance specifically impacts the Mediterranean region. The academic programme will present up-to-date information from epidemiological studies on antimicrobial resistance undertaken in the countries within this area. There will be state-of-the-art lectures delivered by experts in the field, most of whom hail from Mediterranean countries or have worked on projects conducted in the region. They therefore have first-hand knowledge of the problems and possible solutions. Discussion groups will allow delegates to share their experiences in addressing antimicrobial resistance and the important drivers for its control: effective antibiotic stewardship and infection control practices.
The meeting will also be enriched by the presence of speakers representing the European Commission, World Health Organisation, and the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, all key players in antimicrobial resistance initiatives in the region. The additional invitation of decision makers from the Euro-Mediterranean and EMRO countries should provide the right mix for reflective discussion and enable solutions, that are relevant to the region, to be put forward for action.
We look forward to welcome you to Malta in November 2006 and to join us in these fruitful interactions.
