UK – A global AMR powerhouse: Opportunities and benefits through joint innovation and international collaboration

Because AMR can spread internationally, it must be fought internationally. Phil Packer, Innovation Lead of AMR and Vaccines at Innovate UK, and Maarten van Dongen, Director of AMR INSIGHTS Netherlands, gave a presentation on the collaborative efforts of several countries to create real solutions to stop AMR.
