CRE REDUCE is engaging with our collaborators from Ton Duc Thang University in bringing together Asia-Pacific leaders in antimicrobial resistance research in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

The seminar is relevant to clinicians, researchers and policy makers concerned with the spread and emergence of AMR and its potential to negatively affect the aspirations of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Topics will include:

  • Antimicrobial stewardship challenges and opportunities in Vietnam and South East Asia
  • Mycobacterial infection challenges
  • Dengue management in SE Asia
