4-5 November 2024 Riyadh, Ar Riyad, Saudi Arabia
4th Global High-Level Ministerial Meeting on Antimicrobial Resistance

The Fourth Global High-level Ministerial Meeting on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) will bring together leaders to address urgent issues in preventing and managing AMR on a global scale.

Antimicrobials are widely used to prevent and treat infections in humans, aquaculture, livestock, and crop production. However, a number of antimicrobial treatments that once worked no longer do because microorganisms have become resistant to them. The World Health Organization (WHO) has identified AMR as one of the top ten global health threats, noting it threatens human and animal health and welfare, the environment, food and nutrition security and safety, economic development, and equity considerations.

Saudi Arabia will host the 2024 Conference. Previous Global High-level Conferences on AMR convened in the Netherlands in 2014 and 2019 and in Oman in 2022.
