Since its establishment in 1996, the Forum on Microbial Threat has provided a platform for leaders from a wide range of disciplines and industries to debate and collaborate on the most effective ways to understand, anticipate, and manage emerging infectious diseases. The world still grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic at the same time as it addresses other infectious disease threats from mpox to highly pathogenic avian influenza and the spread of drug-resistant bacterial and fungal pathogens. In 2022, the forum held two workshops on antimicrobial resistant fungal pathogens and lessons learned from biomedical research and development during the COVID-19 pandemic. The forum also continued to work closely with the One Health Action Collaborative and remained committed to both cross-disciplinary and community public health discourse.
