+ More About This Channel

Antimicrobial Resistance is a serious threat to global public health that requires action across all sectors and society. Despite the international attention directed at AMR, and many policy discussions for developing new antibiotics accessible to all, the situation remains a major global concern. Key challenges include improving infection prevention, limiting unnecessary use of antibiotics, and using existing antibiotics appropriately in humans, animals, and in agriculture.

Siloed research will not be effective in addressing the AMR crisis. The PLOS AMR Channel, developed in collaboration with the Global Antibiotic Research and Development Partnership (GARDP), will highlight four pillars of AMR research: Basic science – the biology of disease; Research and Development; Appropriate use and Access; Public health – Surveillance and epidemiology.

The Channel Editors are united in the belief that a coordinated, integrated, and prioritised research agenda is required to effectively ensure these areas form a singular public health response. The AMR Channel provides a space where these fields are brought together in one platform, and challenges researchers to think beyond individual research domains.
