Drug-resistant infections pose a grave threat to health and wellbeing across the globe. Bacterial causes of infection are becoming resistant to an increasing number of antibiotics, with consequent reductions in the effectiveness of treatment. The UK Government is playing a leading global role in addressing this problem and has launched the Fleming Fund as a major component of the UK's response.
The aim of the Fleming Fund is to address critical gaps in surveillance of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in Asia, and Sub-Saharan Africa. Countries in these areas are set to bear the highest burden of antibiotic resistant infections.
