As it is well known, the resistance to antimicrobials is one of the most serious health problems nowadays which is developing in bacteria, fungi, virus and parasites as well. This event summons leading figures in microbiology; infectology; other clinical fields; in-hospital epidemiology; and public health for an updating exchange about the medical impact this phenomenon has on the early detection, interpretation and therapeutic management of the infections caused by bacteria, fungi and virus.
This event will count on the participation of well-known international experts and will be the appropriate space to link closer the health sectors of the Americas, Europe and other parts of the world in the fight against the resistance.
