We are delighted to announce the publication of a paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States (PNAS), titled “Filling the gaps in the global prevalence map of clinical antimicrobial resistance” by Rik Oldenkamp, Constance Schultsz, Emiliano Mancini and Antonio Cappuccio. This unique study captures the relationship between antimicrobial resistance prevalence and socioeconomic characteristics and allows for data-driven prioritization of antimicrobial resistance and fills in the gaps for low- and middle income countries (LMICs). This is crucial as surveillance is expensive and has therefore been limited in LMICs. This study tests a much-needed affordable method for systematically estimating prevalence of antimicrobial resistance where resources are limited.
The publication is part of the MAGIcIAN project and was created in cooperation with Dauguvpils University and AIGHD.
