Seminar | Which government policies actually reduce human antimicrobial use?

Summary As governments face domestic and international pressure to tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR), policy strategies such as regulating antimicrobial sales and restricting use of last-resort drugs have become key strategies to reduce antimicrobial use. To inform future action, governments should have access to synthesized data on the effectiveness of large-scale AMR interventions. We have conducted […]

Seminar | ‘Pull’ incentives: How should we value and contract for new antibiotics?

Summary The importance of “pull” incentives to ensure that new antibiotics are available to help fight anti-microbial resistance (AMR): how should we value and contract for new antibiotics? Antibiotic resistance is increasingly rapidly and new antibiotics are urgently needed. Health Technology Assessment (HTA) and payer bodies need to be ready to respond appropriately to new […]
