The findings presented in the report show that there is a strong case for G7 action in the area of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR). The G7 has consistently committed itself to tackling global health challenges, including the fight against infectious diseases, and positioned itself as a leading partner in reaching health-related Millennium Development Goals, by initiating and supporting many global instruments of response to threats posed by infectious diseases. At the national level, all the G7 countries have developed specific policies to tackle AMR both in the human and animal sector.
