Abstract from outcome report:

India’s burden of AMR is staggering, in 2019 alone 297,000 deaths were attributed to AMR and a further 1M deaths associated with drug resistant bacteria. With its unique combination of a dense population, diverse healthcare practices and a significant disease burden, it places the country at a critical stage in the global fight against AMR. The implications of this are far-reaching, with India at centre stage playing a vital role in containing and reducing the burden of AMR. It is estimated by 2050 India will account for 20% of the projected 10 million AMR related deaths. Engagement with key stakeholders has revealed a number of opportunities for cooperation between India and the UK. The team engaged with key stakeholders from industry, government and academia to explore and understand the India AMR innovation landscape and identify opportunities for bilateral engagement.
