GSL Publishes Commentary about the lessons of COVID-19 for AMR in Globalization and Health Journal

On October 8, GSL Research Fellow Lindsay Wilson, GSL Investigator Susan Rodgers Van Katwyk, GSL Associate Director Patrick Fafard, GSL Investigator A.M. Viens, and GSL Director Steven Hoffman published a commentary in Globalization and Health discussing the lessons the AMR community could learn from the COVID-19 response.

In the commentary, the authors found that as was the case with COVID-19, the world is similarly unprepared to respond to antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and the challenges it will produce but that the pandemic presents an opportunity to examine how the international community might better respond to the growing AMR threat.

They acknowledge that the world’s attention is currently rightfully focused on responding to COVID-19, but that there is a moral imperative to take stock of lessons learned and opportunities to prepare for the next global health emergency.
