The COVID-19 pandemic has made it painfully clear how unprepared we have been for a large-scale, global health crisis.

AMR is a slow-burning global crisis that, over the long term, has the potential to be even more catastrophic than COVID-19. Although only an ember right now, it is growing rapidly and, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), by 2050 AMR could claim as many as 10 million lives per year.
