Antimicrobial resistance poses a potential threat to global public health due to challenges that are associated with biomedical and economic aspects. It is important to understand the issue of antimicrobial resistance from different fronts, which include: i. the burden of disease ii. one health aspects; iii. Epidemiological aspects of antimicrbial resistance; and iv. solutions to curb antimicrobial resistance. There is limited information about the burden of disease associated with antimicrobial resistance, particularly in Africa. The aim of this event is to invoke debate about the field of antimicrobial resistance and to share experiences that will lead to advancement of knowledge.
