Country of origin: UK

Recent guidance sets out actions to slow the development and spread of antimicrobial resistance with a focus on antibiotics.

Increasing resistance and a lack of new drugs means a greater risk of infections that cannot be treated. This will make routine medical care riskier and result in more deaths so antimicrobial resistance (AMR) affects us all.

The overall goal of this new cross-government UK strategy is to slow the development and spread of antimicrobial resistance by focusing activities around 3 strategic aims.

• improve the knowledge and understanding of antimicrobial resistance
• conserve and steward the effectiveness of existing treatments
• stimulate the development of new antibiotics, diagnostics and novel therapies

The strategy confirms the UK’s leading role in stimulating national and international action on this global issue and it is important that all sectors respond to the call for action if we are to successfully address this issue.
