Abstract

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has been recognised by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a global health and development threat.1 An accurate, actionable estimate of the AMR burden is needed to priortise resource allocation for strategies to prevent and control AMR including infection control, antimicrobial stewardship and updating strategies. Moreover, a mechanistic understanding of how AMR leads to worse outcomes will inform infection management.
