Toward a Grand Bargain for an International Agreement on Antimicrobial Resistance: Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is an increasing threat to global public health. Despite widespread recognition of the need for immediate collective action to combat resistance, national and international efforts to address AMR have been largely fragmented and uncoordinated. The creation of an international agreement on AMR has been proposed to spur the necessary global response needed. However, for this agreement to be reached, a grand bargain must be struck that fairly balances the burdens and benefits of collective action among state actors. This report explores some of the issues that must be addressed for a grand bargain to be struck (report available here).
