This year, Italy leads the Presidency of the G7: a group that brings together Italy, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America, with additional participation from the European Union. The G7 is united by common values and principles and plays an invaluable role in addressing global challenges. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has been identified as a key topic for upcoming G7 discussions. Italy recognizes the urgency of improving strong governance and leadership in the AMR response. This involves accelerating intersectoral investments and action to preserve antimicrobials as life-saving medicines. This podcast features clinicians, advocates, and policy leaders from Italy. They share the challenges and opportunities in implementing effective stewardship and clinical practice in the Italian healthcare system, as well as how effective policy can transform the landscape to battle AMR.
