About British Academy – Just Transitions
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a significant global concern, with 10 million annual deaths and US$100 trillion projected cost to the global economy by 2050 if no action is taken. Like climate change, AMR is a multi-sectoral, borderless problem that disproportionately affects the poorest, and requires collective action and coordinated efforts. We aim to develop a framework for Just Transitions toward equitable and sustainable solutions to mitigate AMR. Our proposal outlines strategies to engage diverse groups of stakeholders to devise fair policies and regulatory tools, and has the potential to transform approaches to tackling AMR. Synergies with Just Transitions for agriculture and climate will have wider planetary health benefits.
About One Health Trust
One Health Trust uses research and stakeholder engagement to improve the health and well-being of our planet and its inhabitants. OHT builds on the work of the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy (CDDEP), which for more than a decade conducted vitally important research on major global health challenges, including COVID-19, antimicrobial resistance, hospital infections, tuberculosis, malaria, pandemic preparedness and response, vaccination, medical oxygen shortages, and noncommunicable diseases. OHT’s work now expands to take on issues related to climate change, biodiversity protection, and the effect of human diets on the planet.
