Review on AMR: final report

AMR review - ipc

The final report from Jim O’Neill’s Review on AMR is published today. The report summarises the key findings of the reports published by The Review. The key interventions outlined in the report are:

  • A global public awareness campaign
  • Preventing the spread of infection
  • Reducing unnecessary use of antibiotics, and controlling their environmental dissemination
  • Improving surveillance of resistance and consumption
  • Improving diagnostics
  • Explore vaccines
  • Improve remuneration for people working in ID (here here)
  • Develop a global innovation fund for anti-infective drug development
  • Incentivise anti-infective drug development

Not a great deal on infection prevention in the report – but this was covered in detail in a previous report. Some more excellent infographics, and an impressive Review. Well worth a read.
