Ethics and Value Challenges in Antibiotic Resistance Management, Policy and Research, symposium
‘The World Health Organization, WHO, identifies antibiotic resistance as a global challenge threatening human health and the fundamental achievements of modern medicine. Ethics and value conflicts are at the centre of this challenge: both regarding slowing down resistance development and addressing problems due to resistance. These issues arise on all levels, from day-to-day food consumption and clinical health care, pharmaceutical and food production, to national and global policy.’
This symposium was organized by the Centre for Antibiotic Resistance research (CARe) at the University of Gothenburg in November 2017. It assembled world leading scholars from anthropology, economics, ethics, law, philosophy, politics and medicine, across two full days of presentations and discussions.
