As the WHO World Health Assembly is being held in Geneva, Switzerland, on 27 May - 1 June 2024, this is a good time to sign the ESCMID petition on AMR.

Be sure to sign and send to your respective ministers and other influential politicians asking them to mobilize political attention at the highest level possible.

Two CMI articles featured in Annals of Internal Medicine

Great achievement for our journal, Clinical Microbiology and Infection, which had two papers cited (out of 11) in the article ‘Infectious Diseases: What You May Have Missed in 2023’ published in April 2024 on Annals of Internal Medicine. The aim of this article was to highlight important developments in infectious disease evidence unrelated to COVID-19 that were published in 2023, by literature screening for sound new evidence. Among the 11 papers cited, there are works from New England Journal of Medicine and JAMA.
