Global AMR R&D HUB / About / Board of Members

Board of Members

The Global AMR R&D Hub is steered by a Board of Members. All Members and Observers (not voting) have a seat on the Board.

The Board takes decisions on questions central to the operation of the Global AMR R&D Hub such as:

  • applications from countries or organisations to join the Global AMR R&D Hub;
  • the work plan of the Hub;
  • reports, opinions and information to be released on behalf of the Hub;
  • creation or closure of Expert Advisory Groups;
  • changes to the founding document of the Hub, the Terms of Reference;
  • recruitment and dismissal of the Secretariat Lead.

The Board elects a chair and a vice-chair. They should come from different regions of the world. Their term of office is two years. The Board of Members meets face-to-face at least once a year, holds teleconferences in between and communicates through electronic means.

How to become a Member or Observer of the Global AMR R&D Hub?

Membership is open to G20 and non-G20 countries as well as to nongovernmental donor organisations investing in R&D on AMR (e.g. philanthropic foundations). Countries or organisations that are interested to join the Global AMR R&D Hub should send a letter to the Secretariat of the Global AMR R&D Hub in which they explain how their country or organisation addresses the criteria.

  • to take part in the activities of the GLOBAL AMR R&D HUB and to attend the Board meetings;
  • to convey relevant information for the implementation of the GLOBAL AMR R&D HUB, as appropriate.

Members are expected:

  • to be supporting, financially or otherwise, into AMR R&D projects and/or infrastructures immediately or over time alone and/or jointly with national or international partners;
  • to advocate nationally and globally towards other countries and donor organisations for participation in the GLOBAL AMR R&D HUB and increased investments in AMR R&D.
