Much of the previous work to address the alarming rise of drug resistant infections has focussed on initiatives to re-invigorate the supply of new antimicrobial drugs. Success with coming up with new drugs will shift the ‘supply curve’ and solve the problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) for a period of time. However, shifting (and specifically reducing) the demand curve for antimicrobials provides a permanent solution to AMR over the longer term.
