Antimicrobial resistance inquiry


Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a significant and increasing threat to public health in the UK and globally. It is estimated that in the US and Europe alone, antimicrobial-resistant infections currently cause at least 50,000 deaths per year with hundreds of thousands more dying in other areas of the world. If the acceleration of AMR is not slowed, it has been estimated that 10 million people a year could die as a result of AMR by 2050.

Terms of Reference

The Health and Social Care Committee seeks evidence on the progress of the Government to date in responding to the challenge of AMR, including:

  • What results have been delivered by the UK AMR 2013-2018 strategy?
  • What should be the key actions and priorities for the Government’s next AMR strategy, due to be published at the end of this year.
