A One Health Approach to Antimicrobial Resistance: Confronting the Resistome in Humans, Animals, and the Environment

After careful consideration, the NIH and NIAID has made the difficult decision to postpone the One Health Approach to Antimicrobial Resistance meeting scheduled in Rockville MD. After review of the public health data about the coronavirus and its impact on travel , it was determined that it would be an unacceptable risk to hold the conference and related activities at this time. This meeting has been postponed until further notice. 

We regret having to make this decision but determined we must prioritize the health and safety of our conference attendees. This news comes as many other postponements and cancellations of events due to the coronavirus.

We recognize that the new data, exchange of information, and opportunities for collaboration offered by this conference are highly valued by the One Health community. Information on the rescheduled program will be sent by email once it is available. In the meantime, registrants should note the following:

Abstracts that were scheduled to be presented as posters or short talks at the conference will not be published. Abstract authors are encouraged to submit an updated abstract once the rescheduled conference has been confirmed and abstract submission opens.

Registrants who have questions can contact Dr. Parker at tina.parker@nih.gov


This meeting will explore a One Health approach to antimicrobial resistance. Discussions will include an overview of One Health, and explore methods of detection and surveillance, comparisons of data and surveillance systems, diagnostic platform technologies, and strategies which address antimicrobial stewardship across the One Health landscape.
