UK 20-year vision for antimicrobial resistance

How the UK will contribute to containing and controlling antimicrobial resistance (AMR) by 2040.



The vision and plan were developed across the government, its agencies and administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, with support from a range of stakeholders.

It is supported by the UK 5-year action plan for antimicrobial resistance 2019 to 2024.

Both documents build on the achievements of the UK 5-year AMR strategy 2013 to 2018.
