CALL FOR PAPERS
Bacterial Antimicrobial Resistance: Surveillance and Prevention
The emergence of pathogenic bacteria which cannot be effectively treated with existing drugs has been prioritized by WHO as one of the top ten global public health threats facing humanity. The burden of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is disproportionately observed in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), particularly sub-Saharan Africa.
PLOS Medicine is calling submissions of high-quality and high-impact research submissions related to the main drivers, surveillance and prevention of bacterial antimicrobial resistance, particularly in low- and middle-income settings. Submission of articles related to pathogens of highest concern and highest global burden (excluding Mycobacterium tuberculosis) are strongly encouraged, such as Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Acinetobacter baumannii and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
