Why the AMR Industry Alliance?
Antimicrobial resistance poses a formidable threat to the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The United Nations called in 2016 for concerted action from governments and various sectors to address the implications of antimicrobial resistance in a comprehensive manner, and implement strategies at national level.
The AMR Industry Alliance is the life-sciences industry response to the call for action.
Who we are
The AMR Industry Alliance is one of the largest private sector coalitions set up to
provide sustainable solutions to curb antimicrobial resistance, with over 100 biotech, diagnostics,
generics and research-based pharmaceutical companies and associations joining forces.
what we do
We measure and drive the life-sciences industry progress to curb antimicrobial resistance in four different areas:
research & science
Invest in R&D to meet public health needs with new innovative diagnostics and treatments
Work to reduce the development of antimicrobial resistance
Improve access to high-quality antibiotics and ensuring that new ones are available to all
Reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing
Contribute sustainable solutions to curb antimicrobial resistance by creating
a broad industry momentum and facilitating collaboration between the public and private sectors.
how we work
We increase accountability and facilitate progress by breaking down the traditional silos across the life-science industry and sharing information.
