Progress made in cutting antimicrobial resistance

Progress made in cutting antimicrobial resistance Progress is being made in preventing antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in the UK, according to two new government reports.

The government has published its official response report to Lord O’Neill’s review Tackling drug-resistant infections globally, which made 10 recommendations on how to best prevent the challenge of antimicrobial resistance.

Lord O’Neill’s review’s recommendations included raising awareness of AMR globally, reducing the use of antibiotics in animals and improving hygiene to help stop the spread of infection.

It also highlighted the consequences of not taking steps to tackle AMR, warning that there could be 10 million deaths a year by 2050 and the potential end of modern medicine as we know it. OnMedica
