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

Despite the ongoing challenges presented by the pandemic, the AMR Industry Alliance’s 2021 Progress Report captures efforts made by the life sciences industry to fight AMR across several domains: research and science, access, appropriate use, and manufacturing. The third iteration of this biannual report captures progress made by Alliance members between July 2019 and March 2021. Find out more below.

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.
