2021 AMR Preparedness Index

  25 June 2021

As the world attempts to learn lessons from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, national policymakers must address another public health crisis that already kills an estimated 700,000 people each year : the growth of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). If governments fail to combat this growing threat, the consequences could be catastrophic. One study projects that drug-resistant infections could claim 10 million lives annually by 2050.

To help countries drive progress, we are proud to share this AMR Preparedness Index, a first of-its-kind examination of national level commitments to address AMR. Our research team examined 11 of the largest economies in the world to create a benchmark for measuring progress across seven areas crucial to combating AMR.
