We drive and measure the life-sciences industry progress to curb antimicrobial resistance in four different areas:
We are uniting efforts to reduce the development of antimicrobial resistance, invest in R&D to meet public health needs and improve access to antibiotics, vaccines and diagnostics.
In 2018, the Alliance published its first progress report that provides unique insights into the practical steps its members are taking to respond to AMR. The findings of the report illustrate both the challenges the healthcare sector faces in tackling AMR and how the industry is essential to winning this battle.
Our case studies provide snap-shots from across the life-sciences industry, share information on the tangible steps we are taking to invest in new research to develop new antibiotics and vaccines, prevent infection ,and improve appropriate use of antibiotics.
