The AMR Challenge encourages global leaders to make formal commitments in at least one of five key action areas to further progress against antibiotic resistance. The first commitments will be revealed next week.

The AMR Challenge will begin at a side event at the 2018 United Nations General Assembly on September 25. The AMR Challenge is led by the U.S Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and builds on national momentum to combat antibiotic resistance.
