New journal series published: Addressing the Global Threat of Antibiotics Resistance (ABR)

The recently launched Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics Summer 2015 issue focuses on “Antibiotic Resistance” (ABR) and includes a series of articles detailing the need for global collective action for ABR and what tools are needed to achieve it. The series sought input from experts from a diverse range of academic and professional disciplines – each of whom brings a unique perspective to advancing global health. This series was supported by ReAct, the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation and the Norwegian Institute of Public Health.
