We drive and measure the life-sciences industry progress to curb antimicrobial resistance in four different areas:

Invest in R&D to meet public health needs with new innovative diagnostics & treatments
Improve access to high-quality antibiotics and ensuring that new ones are available to all
Work to reduce the development of antimicrobial resistance
Support measures to reduce environmental impact from production of antibiotics

shared goals

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.

progress report

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.

in action

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.
