The private sector is a hive of ideas and investment—and when it comes to antimicrobial resistance, it needs to be. Without financial backing and urgent policy attention we will face a public health crisis, but this is not just a human issue. Environment, food, and agriculture are often-overlooked domains of AMR. Join policymakers, pharmaceutical companies, academic researchers and NGOs as we explore the future of artificial intelligence, machine learning and data collection in the fight against AMR. The conference will include country-specific case studies, and link themes and discussions to the twinned Economist Events Antimicrobial Resistance Summit Asia that was held in Singapore this December 2019. The end goal will be to bring together all segments of the AMR ecosystem and identify productive models, innovations and partnerships to advance global efforts in fighting this major threat to public health.
