Tackling antimicrobial resistance in low-income and middle-income countries

  25 November 2019

High burden of infectious diseases, poverty, weak governance and health systems, and low awareness in many low-income and middle-income countries remain major challenges in the fight against AMR. Efforts to address AMR globally must take into consideration these peculiar challenges.
