Welcome to the conference
On behalf of the Government of the Netherlands, we are pleased to welcome you to the official website for the Second Ministerial Conference on Antimicrobial Resistance, which takes place on 19 and 20 June 2019.
We look forward to welcoming you this summer to our vibrant province of South Holland. The Second Ministerial Conference on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) will take place in Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin, in the historic town of Noordwijk. Here, in this venue at sea, we would like to explore what has been done since we have convened five years ago, and to take further steps with you to accelerate the implementation of the Global Action Plan on AMR. For two days, working closely together with the World Health Organization (WHO), Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), we will look back at recent global developments and explore new ways to work jointly to tackle the threat of antimicrobial resistance.
The aim of this conference is to strengthen and accelerate international cooperation in the global fight against antimicrobial resistance. The focus of this conference will be international and multi-sectoral cooperation within the framework of the One Health approach. Similarly to five years ago, we hope to bring together our international colleagues who are responsible for public health and agricultural policy. In order to work towards specific cooperative relations, we want to give the concept of AMR-twinning a central place during the conference. With this concept of AMR-twinning, we will strive to create cooperative bonds between nations that will be beneficial to the implementation of their national action plans. Furthermore, the conference will allow for dialogue with a wide variety of AMR stakeholders in the field to enhance exchange of the most recent insights and knowledge. Your presence will therefore be of great importance, and highly appreciated.
On this website you will find the programme for 19 and 20 June, the registration form, practical information, and further details on the objective of the Second Ministerial Conference on Antimicrobial Resistance.
