Planet Earth faces the very real threat of having to survive and thrive in a ‘post-antibiotic’ era in which there are few, if any, antibiotics which effectively and affordably cure infections. A world without antibiotics would necessitate radical changes in health care and farming. Despite the severity of this threat, many low- and middle-income countries struggle to identify resources for even basic activities related to antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

In this context, the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation and ReAct – Action on Antibiotic Resistance – hosted a meeting to discuss how AMR could become more visible and how more funds to tackle AMR could be mobilised.
