The Swedish publication ‘Dagens Medicin’ has today, 1 April 2015, published an article by Mats Ulfendahl, JPIAMR’s Chair of the Management Board. The article is written in response to the discussion around a new Swedish AMR strategy which was held at the beginning of March. Mats emphasises the importance of coordinating international AMR funding to create greater impact. He also puts focus on this method bringing funding to countries where AMR is highly prevalent but where research funding for this field is scarce. In addition, the article talks about the need to create greater communication and collaboration across disciplines to better understand the interaction between humans, animals and the environment in the context of AMR.
