Antimicrobial resistance is classified by the World Health Organisation as a global health and development threat with significant economic costs. The first step to addressing this growing concern is development of an accurate measurement of prevalence in the community. The aim of this project is to develop a viable model for ongoing monitoring of antimicrobial use and resistance. The intention to achieve this by combining existing resources available with wastewater testing currently undertaken. This will involve calculations based on information in multiple large data sources, and the non target screening of metabolites.
