Why

Attend

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the biggest global health crises that the world is facing today. The growing threat of AMR is as real as it gets. The vision of our Symposium is to brainstorm and define the challenges and opportunities and develop strategies to combat this global pandemic in the making.

Scientific Knowledge and Spiritual Wisdom are like two streams. If we merge these two streams we will find that we are able to create a mighty river, a river whose waters can remove suffering and facilitate the holistic growth of society.
