Global access to effective antimicrobials is under threat. While insufficient and delayed access to antibiotics currently cause more deaths than antibiotic resistance, more resistance-related deaths are being reported in all countries irrespective of income level. The key is to promote universal provision of antimicrobials in appropriate situations while ensuring continued effectiveness. Prof. Laxminarayan will discuss how we might leverage the momentum achieved through the UN General Assembly High-Level Meeting of Heads of State on sustainable access to effective antimicrobials in September 2016 to develop realistic goals, stimulate political will, mobilize resources, and agree on an accountability mechanism for global collective action on this crucial issue.
