Wednesday, 02 October 2013 11:13
A five-year cross-government strategy has been published to manage the increasing problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
It aims to slow the development and spread of AMR by focusing activities around three strategic aims:
- improve the knowledge and understanding of AMR
- conserve and steward the effectiveness of existing treatments
- stimulate the development of new antibiotics, diagnostics and novel therapies
The strategy also provides £4million to set up a new NIHR Health Protection Research Unit which will focus on AMR and healthcare associated infections and a themed research call to encourage AMR research across a range of areas.
