Address the problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR)

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global threat with potentially devastating consequences to those infected with resistant pathogens and high direct and indirect cost to society. In the future, lack of effective antibiotics could make routine medical interventions extremely dangerous and make other more complex interventions and procedures impossible. For these reasons, AMR must be regarded as a global, regional, and national priority for health organizations and governments.
