Prince William says, “Antimicrobial resistance threatens our health, our environment, our livelihoods and our future. Unless we act now and together, the ripple effects of drug resistance will be felt across generations, jeopardising the wellbeing of our children and our grandchildren. Prince William became patron of a new appeal to create The Fleming Centre in 2023.

Based at St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London, the development of the Centre is being led by Imperial College London and Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, and will drive a worldwide movement to tackle AMR.

“Today’s conference on antimicrobial resistance is all about joining forces to address this urgent global health challenge. It’s so important to continue exchanging ideas, building partnerships, and taking action to confront AMR and protecting public health,” Prince William added.
