'Superbugs' in India: Antimicrobial resistance, inequality and development

  • Doron, Assa (Primary Investigator)
  • Broom, Alex (Co-Investigator)

    Project Details


    The project aims to provide an analysis of the cultural and social drivers behind the threat of antimicrobial resistance in India. As the highest consumer of antibiotics globally, India is central to the global challenge of addressing antimicrobial resistance. This anthropological study focuses on antimicrobial resistance as a distinctly social problem. The intended outcomes include a deep understanding of how the crisis is unfolding in India at the nexus of poverty, weak governance and embedded cultural practices. Anticipated findings will generate policy-relevant outputs to optimise antimicrobial use and position Australia as a leading voice in addressing a global threat.
