International Society of Microbial Resistance

International Society of Microbial Resistance is a new non-profit organization created specifically to place a laser-like focus on the global health challenge of microbial resistance. Our expectation is that you will find this a valuable source of information and education as the site is developed in the coming months.

The mission of The International Society of Microbial Resistance is to create a multidisciplinary forum at the intersection of research, clinical practice, and professional and consumer education that will heighten awareness and bring attention to the global challenge of microbial resistance.

The scope of vision is a focus on microbial resistance: surveillance, diagnostic and laboratory methods, patterns of antimicrobial drug use, drug use and resistance trends in agriculture, drug-use policies, prevention, assessment of economic impacts, vaccines, and new technology development.

This mission will be accomplished by employing a full spectrum of 21st-century publishing media, and by creating strategic partnerships with others in the development of events and projects that address this multifaceted health threat. ISMR will facilitate scientific and research activities, professional continuing education, and consumer awareness and education campaigns.

World Medical Association

The World Medical Association (WMA) is an international organization representing physicians. It was founded on 17 September 1947, when physicians from 27 different countries met at the First General Assembly of the WMA in Paris. The organization was created to ensure the independence of physicians, and 1to work for the highest possible standards of ethical behaviour and care by physicians, at all times. This was particularly important to physicians after the Second World War, and therefore the WMA has always been an independent confederation of free professional associations. Funding has been by the annual contributions of its members, which has now grown to approximately 80 National Medical Associations.

The WMA provides a forum for its member associations to communicate freely, to co-operate actively, to achieve consensus on high standards of medical ethics and professional competence, and to promote the professional freedom of physicians worldwide.

This unique partnership facilitates high-calibre, humane care to patients in a healthy environment, enhancing the quality of life for all people in the world.

The purpose of the WMA is to serve humanity by endeavoring to achieve the highest international standards in Medical Education, Medical Science, Medical Art and Medical Ethics, and Health Care for all people in the world.
