The new "war cabinet" strategy, led by the Medical Research Council (MRC) will aim to fight antimicrobial resistance "on all fronts," says the MRC chief executive.
Professor Sir John Savill, said:
Researchers have been waging a war on AMR (Antimicrobial Resistance) for decades but up until now we've had no war cabinet to co-ordinate research on all fronts.
This is about tackling the problem at every level and in every environment - from labs to livestock, from finding new diagnostic tools to educating professionals and the public.
