  • Aims and objectives of this session

    Infections have ever since accompanied mankind. It is only 80 years since infections have become successfully treatable diseases, by the development of effective anti-infective strategies.
    In antibacterial treatment this success is going to be lost, by the increasing threat of antimicrobial resistance. This thematic session will focus on the current problems and evidence in treating infectious diseases in urology.
