Influencing how governments, decision-making bodies and multiple social and economic actors respond to antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a key element of improving global health. Our work integrates current economic, public and political policy and research, the social sciences and on-the-ground action research to best advise how they should advance. We guide global government discussion through our multidisciplinary research into current antimicrobial use and, critically, the future life-threatening risks of AMR.
Our research is informing policy at the highest level including at the United Nations Environment Assembly and many national governments across the world, setting an example for others to follow suit.
