New WHO report calls for urgent action to avert antimicrobial resistance crisis

International organizations unite on critical recommendations to combat drug-resistant infections and prevent staggering number of deaths each year

UN, international agencies and experts today released a groundbreking report demanding immediate, coordinated and ambitious action to avert a potentially disastrous drug-resistance crisis.

If no action is taken – warns the UN Ad hoc Interagency Coordinating Group on Antimicrobial Resistance who released the report – drug-resistant diseases could cause 10 million deaths each year by 2050 and damage to the economy as catastrophic as the 2008-2009 global financial crisis. By 2030, antimicrobial resistance could force up to 24 million people into extreme poverty.
