Social scientists have much to offer to public health efforts to address disease outbreaks and the emergence and spread of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Yet social scientists have often been poorly integrated into these efforts to address infectious threats. There is clear demand to develop and coordinate social science expertise to maximize its public health impact.
Funded by the European Commission, Sonar-Global is building a sustainable international social sciences network to engage the active participation of the social sciences in preparedness and response to infectious threats, including AMR.
