The European Society for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID) has been joined by the World Health Organization (WHO) to launch the 7th annual International Day for Fighting Infection. This year’s event sees the European society exploring vaccines as a possible solution in the global, cross-border fight against antimicrobial resistance.
The event is free for anyone to attend. The overall mission of the day is to increase international collaboration and to highlight cutting-edge methods in the battle against infectious disease. The WHO will be providing an update from its European office across Ebola, Extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis and polio, while ESCMID will explore how we can start harnessing the potential of vaccines in the intensifying battle against antimicrobial resistance.
