Tackling antibiotic resistance

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global crisis with a death toll set to rise exponentially by 2050. Spurring global innovation of new antibiotics, alternative therapies and diagnostics tools is integral to effectively combating this challenge. But, as this study shows, the response to date has been belated, poorly coordinated and lacking in focus. The authors make 16 key policy recommendations to reinvigorate the response to the global AMR threat.
