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.
