Why become a member
We know that antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global problem that will
require international and collaborative solutions. SEDRIC is committed to
bringing together the AMR community to provide useful information and
solutions for surveillance and epidemiology. Our members are an
important part of those solutions.
By becoming a member of SEDRIC, you’ll be able to connect with global
network of over 100 surveillance and epidemiology professionals. You’ll

to our on-going research.
Members can engage with SEDRIC through a range of activities:
- Access to a network of leading experts committed to knowledge and data sharing.

Participants may have the opportunity to present their research.
