In the past months Netherlands Centre for One Health (NCOH) has been hosting a series of scientific lectures on COVID-19. This time not the current pandemic, but a silent pandemic, the antimicrobial resistance, was put in the centre of attention. If you missed it, below you can find access to the full webinar recording and the presentation slides.
The fourth NCOH webinar was broadcasted on 19 November within the World Antimicrobial Awareness Week (WAAW). The aim of this week is to increase awareness of global antimicrobial resistance and to encourage best practices among the general public, health workers and policy makers to avoid the further emergence and spread of drug-resistant infections.
