CGD Blog Post Examines 3 Steps For International Community To Make AMR Action ‘Meaningful’

Center for Global Development’s “Global Health Policy Blog”: AMR Gets the UNGA Spotlight; Now Can It Get Meaningful Action?
Rachel Silverman, senior policy analyst at CGD, examines the recent U.N. General Assembly meeting on antimicrobial resistance and “what needs to happen to translate the [resulting] resolution to meaningful action.” Silverman says that “countries need to get specific about the requisite policy change required to mount a robust global and national response” to address AMR; increase funding “to implement a robust global action plan for AMR containment”; and establish or designate “an institution with the mandate, funding, capacity, and political buy-in to carry forward this agenda” (9/26).
