Researchers at IHME and the University of Oxford produced estimates of deaths and years of life lost (YLLs) associated with bacterial infections caused by 33 pathogens across 204 locations in 2019. This study extends the results of the 2019 Global Burden of AMR study and uses its overall methodological approach to provide more granular estimates. A variety of data were gathered to inform these estimates, including multiple cause of death data, hospital discharges, minimally invasive tissue sampling, systematic literature reviews, and microbiology lab results from hospitals and national and multi-national surveillance systems, with a total of 343 million individual records or isolates and 11,361 study-location-years collected. These data informed 6 modelling components which were then combined with results from GBD 2019 to estimate the burden of AMR.
