Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite all of you to participate in the Seventh Indonesian Antimicrobial Resistance Watch (7th IARW) National Symposium, which will be held on July 1st – 3rd , 2011 at (Jakarta).Hotel, Jakarta – Indonesia.

Theme of 7th IARW symposium is “ Best Practices in Antibiotic Resistance Mitigation ”.

This symposium will be of great importance for all stakeholders who will do never ending fight against infectious diseases. Since the most appropriate strategic approach is always locally specific, we will present data and experiences which had been collected from across the country. We believe this symposium will give us a great benefit to mitigate antimicrobial resistance, particularly in our hospitals and communities. Prominent speakers, from basic science to clinical application, have given their confirmation to participate in this special event.

This event is organized by PAMKI (Perhimpunan Ahli Mikrobiologi Klinik Indonesia – Indonesian Society of Clinical Microbiologist) in close collaboration with other professional such as Pharmacologist, Infectious and Tropical Diseases Experts, Pulmonologist, Intensive Care Experts, Parasitologist, etc. We feel obliged to inform, recommend and set strategies that will support medical practitioners towards a prudent use of antimicrobials.

We hope this symposium will give substantial information for Clinicians, Clinical Microbiologists, Pharmaceutical Companies, Health Authorities as well as other interested parties to work hand in hand in mitigating antimicrobial resistance in Indonesia and extending the use of existing antimicrobials. Please be sure that you will not miss the opportunity of participating in this great event.

Looking forward to seeing you on July 1st – 3rd , 2011 in Jakarta – Indonesia.


With warm regards,



Prof. Dr. Amin Soebandrio,PhD,SpMK(K)
