Oman: Dr. Bharati Pravin Pawar, Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare, will take part in the third global high-level ministerial conference on antibiotic resistance, which will take place in Muscat, Oman, on the 24th and 25th of this month.
During the conference’s inaugural session for the delegation heads, she will deliver India’s national address. Dr. Pawar will also hold in-depth conversations on antimicrobial resistance, or AMR, with other leaders, policymakers, significant international experts, representatives from the commercial sector, civil society, research institutes, and multilateral organisations during the conference. Avoiding the use of antibiotics to treat bacterial illnesses is one of the biggest dangers to global public health.
The conference will strengthen worldwide collaboration to combat AMR and build on the success of the two prior high-level ministerial conferences conducted in the Netherlands in 2014 and 2019. The meeting’s topic is “The AMR Pandemic: From Policy to One Health Action.” At the UN General Assembly High-Level Meeting on AMR in 2024, governments are anticipated to make bold and concrete political commitments as a result of the conference.
