First AMR Preparedness Index finds UK, US top charts tackling rising antimicrobial resistance threat

  26 June 2021

A new report from the Global Coalition on Aging (GCOA) and the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), a first of its kind known as the AMR Preparedness Index, provides an evaluation and roadmap for the 11 largest global economies and their efforts to tackle rising cases of antimicrobial resistance. 

While recognition of the threat has risen, according to the organizations, there has been a broad failure to match public promises and actual actions to avert a crisis. The U.K. and the United States have fared best along with Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, and South Korea. Case studies were presented from Australia, Kenya, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Sweden as well.
