Abstract

The health impact of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has not been included in the Global Burden Disease (GBD) report, as reliable data has been lacking. AMR burden estimates have been derived from models combining incidence and/or prevalence data from national and/or international surveillance systems and mortality estimates from clinical studies. Depending on utilized empirical data, statistical methodology and applied endpoints, the validity and reliability of results can substantially differ.
