Global Community Must Strengthen Governance Against AMR

The Lancet: Global governance of antimicrobial resistance
Connor Rochford of the Blavatnik School of Government at the University of Oxford and colleagues

“…The danger of [antimicrobial resistance (AMR)] moving across borders demands the strengthening of global governance arrangements; no country can avoid the consequences if antimicrobials become ineffective. Effective action is only possible if all countries, agencies, and other actors organize ourselves across national boundaries. The focused set of priorities for AMR governance, the international legal process needed to deliver on these, and the supporting High-Level AMR Commission and Global Steering Board that we propose are only part of the solution. A truly global response to reduce the threat of AMR requires everyone to play their part. We welcome discussion on what the functions of the Global Steering Board could be” (5/19).
