This Series examines the access and sustainable effectiveness of antimicrobials. The first two papers provide an insight into the mechanisms and drivers of antimicrobial resistance, its disease burden, and the potential effect of vaccines in restricting the need for antibiotics. The last three papers in the Series examine access and sustainability of antimicrobials at a more geographical level: reviewing access in low-income and middle-income countries; considering different policy domains and their effectiveness at national and regional levels to combat resistance; and identifying gaps in the current global effort to improve international collaboration and achieve key policy goals.
