A just transition for antimicrobial resistance: planning for an equitable and sustainable future with antimicrobial resistance

contributing author: Calvin W. L. Ho
in Lancet

Antimicrobial resistance is among the most urgent global health challenges of our time, with an estimated 4·95 million deaths associated with resistant bacteria in 2019. That microbes develop resistance to antimicrobials is accepted as an evolutionary inevitability for their survival, driven by competition between and among micro-organisms in the natural environment. How to reduce the impact of drug resistance in the future is a matter of global concern, considering the consequences that clinically ineffective antimicrobials will have for health care and agricultural systems that have come to rely on these powerful substances. This paper highlights the need to plan for a future with antimicrobial resistance, and introduces a project to facilitate a just transition towards an equitable and sustainable future.

Global health law and ethics relate to a diverse range of issues that include right to global health, the human right of access to basic medical services, national and coordinated international responses to and the management of global health hazards (including responses to emergent infections, epidemics, antimicrobial resistance (AMR), addiction and substance abuse), the socio-legal management of and responses to risky behaviours (including sexually transmitted diseases, addiction and substance abuse), and transnational health-related research or research involving international organisations. Our scholars actively engage with these and other issues in global health law and ethics through their research, as well as knowledge exchange, policy and service commitments.
