Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has been known about for a long time but only relatively recently emerged as a global policy issue, with countries worldwide now committed to combatting the problem through a UN declaration.

In this project we are interested in taking historical and comparative perspectives to understanding how AMR has developed as a policy issue. We will look at the historical development of climate change and tobacco control as comparator issues, and examine whether there are lessons that can be drawn from this comparison to consider future approaches to scenario planning and decision-making for AMR. The research will bring policymakers and stakeholders together through learning events with a view to informing future AMR policy.
