Welcome back to The AMR Studio dear listeners. This month, we bring you an interview with Helle Aagaard, deputy director at ReAct, who has recently, as lead author, published a new report looking into sustainable solutions for access to effective antibiotics for everyone, everywhere. Listen to her story to learn more about her background and entry into policy and advocacy, and some insights into the new report. Fixing the problems around antibiotics all around the world is no easy feat, but what is it needed and where should we start? In the news section we bring you the recently published "Stewardship and access plan development guide" and a publication looking into the potential role that artificial sweeteners might have on the spread of antibiotic resistance. We hope you enjoy this episode and look forward to next ones!
