    Abstract

    Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a growing problem worldwide, leading to increased morbidity, mortality and costs, with the overall costs of AMR typically exceeding the costs of the different antibiotics prescribed and dispensed. AMR is particularly important in lower- and middle-income countries (LMICs) as these countries have the highest burden of infectious diseases with growing rates of resistant organisms.
