On October 9th in London, SEDRIC will host its first global meeting. The focus for the day will be ‘mobilising surveillance and epidemiology data to inform patient care pathways’. 

The meeting will bring together SEDRIC members, AMR stakeholders and experts in the field of surveillance to raise awareness of surveillance gaps as identified by the work of the Consortium. We are excited to host WHO, CDC USA and CDC Africa, JPIAMR and UK Fleming Fund in a roundtable discussion to hear about international initiatives in surveillance. Attendees and members will also have an opportunity to share ideas and recommendations on how to shape our strategic priorities and activities going forward. The complete meeting agenda can be found here.

One of the focuses of our work so far has been to ensure we are including perspectives and experiences from low- and middle-income settings. To ensure we have those in London in October we have awarded ten travel bursaries.

The travel bursary awardees are:
