The Bulletin series: antimicrobial resistance
The Bulletin highlights antimicrobial resistance -- the theme of World Health Day 2011 -- in a new series of articles

Almost ten years since the WHO global strategy for containment of antimicrobial resistance was published, the World Health Organization has announced this topic as the theme for World Health Day in 2011. The Bulletin highlights this important issue in the following series of articles.
