Uppsala Health Summit 10 - 11 October 2017
Infectious diseases are resurfacing as a serious threat to global health, with serious consequences for social and economic stability on community level as well as on global level. The situation is worsened by the spread of antimicrobial resistance, which seriously reduces our capacity to deal with outbreaks.
There is a multitude of interlinked drivers behind this surge, such as climate change, global travel or animal health. In 2015, Uppsala Health Summit covered the threat from antibiotic resistance. This year at Uppsala Health Summit 2017, we will adopt a one health approach and discuss how we can manage infectious disease threats through better global and local management.
