Anthropological study can provide important insights for addressing AMR. This paper describes anthropological approaches for understanding the context of increasing antimicrobial use around the globe as well as how important anthropological contributions to the study of infectious diseases can inform studies of AMR emergence and transmission. Four themes are followed to illustrate this: care; pharmaceuticals and markets; knowledge; and ecologies. Together, these accounts illustrate the complex stories behind our relations with microbes and antimicrobial medicines across the world today, and help us to study and anticipate consequences – intended or not – of both AMR and AMR control strategies globally.
