Antimicrobial Resistance Partnership Hub launched in China
The UK-China AMR Programme is a collaborative research and training programme that will bring together leading experts in the UK and China to tackle antibiotic resistance, the type of AMR identified as most critical to human health.
The programme will conduct research that will deliver key evidence that is required to enhance the success of antibiotic resistance reduction strategies in China. Three linked projects will investigate behavioural, economic and environmental aspects of antibiotic resistance. This will involve measuring human exposure to antibiotics (from environmental and livestock sources) and documenting patterns of antibiotic use in health care; designing a tailored intervention for China and produce evidence-based recommendations to modify antibiotic prescribing behaviour, in order to reduce antibiotic consumption; and estimating the cost-effectiveness of different intervention strategies, as well as the economic burden of AMR to the country.
