Key Speakers Confirmed:
Infection prevention and control (IPC) has cost the NHS approximately £2.3 billion by the end of 2018. In January 2019, the government published a ’20 Year Vision’ and ‘5 Year National Action Plan’ on how the UK will aid in containing and controlling Antimicrobial Resistance by 2040. The main targets include cutting the prevalence of drug-resistant infections by 10% (5,000 infections) by 2025, decreasing the use of antibiotics in humans by 15% and preventing at least 15,000 patients from contracting infections resulting from their healthcare each year by 2024.
