The Potential Socio-Economic Impacts of Antimicrobial Resistance in Canada

Project Details

Layman's description

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is a growing problem across the world. According to the World Health Organisation, AMR is present in every country and its impacts range from lengthier hospital stays to an increased mortality rate post-surgery. How can we prepare for the spread of AMR and what are the potential impacts on our lives and economy? Those were the questions posed by the Canadian Council of Academics (CCA), who approached Birmingham City University and the RAND Corporation to develop a predictive model that would quantify the potential costs of AMR in Canada.
