Nature: Wellcome Trust: Report released on antibiotic resistance
In this correspondence, Jeremy Farrar, director of the Wellcome Trust, and Sally Davies, chief medical officer for England, announce the release of “a report to inform the United Nations General Assembly’s High-level Meeting on Antimicrobial Resistance later this month. … It identifies three areas for immediate action to alleviate the current and future impact of drug-resistant infections on the number of deaths and on national economies…” They conclude, “Continued support for scientific research and innovation is essential to shape future responses, but the need for further research must not be an excuse for delaying urgent interventions” (9/8).
