Abstract

Antibiotic resistance kills many more people than Ebola and our global policy responses remain inadequate to the threat posed. We map out an agenda for collective action and potential international legal mechanisms to address antibiotic resistance.

Keywords: antiobiotic resistance, collection action, innovation, delinkage

JEL Classification: I12, I19, K32, K39
