The Global Forum, sponsored by the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy (CDDEP) and the Public Health Foundation of India, will focus on the burden of bacterial infections in the developing world.
Other topics will include:
- Hospital-acquired infections (including pneumonia and sepsis) and hospital infection control
- Antibiotic resistance in public, private and mission sectors
- Community-acquired pneumonia
- Antibiotic stewardship
- Use of antibiotics in the community and in hospitals and other healthcare facilities
- Antibiotics in livestock and other food animals
- Policy responses to expand antibiotic access while limiting the spread of resistance
The Global Forum will be the first gathering of its kind held in a developing country. We anticipate welcoming more than 600 researchers, clinicians, public health program managers and policymakers, most from low- and middle-income countries. Participants from both public and private sector organisations will share research findings, challenges and solutions relevant to the developing world.
