During November, 2011, I attended separate meetings dedicated to exploring the incidence of antimicrobial resistance in two areas of the developing world, India and Cambodia. The first, sponsored jointly by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM), the European Society for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID), and the Indian Association of Medical Microbiologists (IAMM), was named the "International Workshop on Antimicrobial Resistance" and was held at the Haffkine Institute in Mumbai, India. Organized by Prof. Lance Peterson (ASM representative), Prof. Abhay Chowdhary (Director of Haffkine Institute), Prof. V. Ravi (President of the IAMM), and Prof. Guiseppe Cornaglia (President of ESCMID), the workshop brought together around 250 participants, principally from India, to discuss various aspects of antimicrobial resistance over a 2.5 day program.
