Superbugs: reframing a global health emergency

Superbugs: reframing a global health emergency

This event has finished Took place on: Monday, 13th Jan 2020

Antibiotic resistance, known officially as antimicrobial resistance (AMR), is killing 700,000 people a year and is predicted to cost 10 million lives annually by 2050. By any metric, this is an international health crisis, albeit one that is taking place in slow-motion. Yet, as the most recent Chatham House report lays out, there has so-far been a crippling lack of action globally.

Times journalist David Aaronovitch – whose life was saved by antibiotics after a routine operation went catastrophically wrong – talks to leading journalists and scientists to find out how we can shift the narrative around AMR in order to affect real change, rather than just more words.
