A collaboration between the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation(opens in a new tab)(IHME) and University of Oxford’s Big Data Institute, will, for the very first time, map of disease and deaths caused by drug-resistant infections.
It is co-funded by the UK government, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Wellcome.
There is no doubt that together we can stop the superbugs which could undermine the whole of modern medicine. But the impact is now and the time to act is now, we need to bring real urgency to this.
Over four years it will:
- Gather global data on select bacteria-antibacterial drug combinations
- Generate global estimates for those ‘bug-drug’ combinations from 1990 to the present in 195 countries and territories
- Produce detailed maps enabling policymakers and researchers to tailor future studies and interventions to the local level
- Provide free, public access to study results through interactive data visualisations.
