The UK delegation to the World Health Assembly in Geneva, led by Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Chief Medical Officer Professor Dame Sally Davies, is calling for international action to tackle the growing problem of fewer medicines to tackle the soaring number of antibiotic-resistant infections.

This publication contains written reports detailing ways in which countries are tackling Antimicrobial resistance (AMR). It will form the basis for discussions at a side-event at WHA to be held on 21 May and which will be hosted by the UK.
