This research theme aims to:
- identify specific economic conditions, social norms and attitudes relating to antibiotics in order to develop context appropriate strategies
- evaluate interventions to control/prevent the spread of resistant bacteria
- assess the wider costs and benefits of behaviour change strategies
- link surveillance data to stewardship practices to understand variance in impact
- develop and evaluate economic and regulatory models that balance the appropriate use of drugs and the mitigation of AMR while appropriately rewarding innovation
- consider the role of existing and new business models in encouraging innovation
