Within-country disparities can be even more polarized so that separation of public health problems along geographical and regional lines alone is overly simplistic. It is not entirely clear how these disparities play out in the epidemiology of antimicrobial resistance. Resistance is an externality so that the resistance-promoting activities of some may have consequences for others. People living in poverty are least able to buffer themselves from the consequences of resistance, even though they may contribute less to the problem in terms of selective pressure.
