AMR Research and Development Needs Greater Push Through Policies

The blog article written by the Hub’s Secretariat Director Dr. Lesley Ogilvie, reflects on the critical role of antibiotics in modern medicine, particularly in the context of cancer treatment and surgery. It emphasizes the looming threat of AMR and its potential impact on healthcare globally, especially in light of an insufficient pipeline of new antibiotics, highlighting the urgent need for action.

Key messages:

  • Antibiotics are essential in modern healthcare, but the threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) poses a significant challenge to global health systems.
  • The pipeline of new antibacterials is fragile and we need urgent action across the push and pull spectrum
  • Coordinated efforts across sectors and innovative policies are needed to address AMR effectively, including sustainable financing mechanisms and increased funding for AMR vaccines and diagnostics.
