This Policy Lates event will examine the roles of innovation and regulation in tackling the AMR crisis from different perspectives, including veterinary research, biotechnology and public health.
Earlier this year, a review of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) by Lord Jim O'Neill set out a comprehensive action plan for the world to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, develop new rapid diagnostic tools and incentivise research into new antibiotics.
According to the report, if not tackled urgently, antimicrobial resistance could kill 10 million people a year by 2050, the equivalent of 1 person every 3 seconds; more than cancer kills today.
