AMR Social Science launched to provide solutions to antimicrobial resistance

  06 March 2020

Antibiotic resistance will lead to progressively worsening health, economic and social costs in the coming decades. Effective strategies for governing antimicrobial use will be essential to curb the rise of multi-resistant organisms and preserve the viability of existing antibiotics.

AMR Social Science, a new research node within the University of Sydney’s Marie Bashir Institute, launched this week. The node is dedicated to understanding how different social, political and economic contexts shape local antimicrobial practices and the perpetuation of resistance across context and cultures.
