Animal health R&D in LMICs

23.11.2021:  Antimicrobial resistance is a global public health threat that disproportionately affects low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). It presents risks to human health and also has severe implications for the health and welfare of animal populations, with major food security and environmental implications. IDRC and the Global AMR R&D Hub are pleased to publish a new report, which analyses the funding patterns of animal health AMR R&D in LMICs. In publishing this report, our two organizations hope to provide insight into investment and data gaps to inform the international community and provide evidence to help set future funding priorities in AMR research.

Cloud-based visualization of data serves science in the global fight against resistant pathogens

08.10.2021: Where science meets digitalization: the Global Antimicrobial Resistance Research and Development Hub, or Global AMR R&D Hub, works with huge amounts of research data from all around the world. In its mission to combat resistance to antimicrobial medication, the Hub needed a way of transparently documenting how research funding is used and make this information available to the public. The solution came in the form of a dynamic dashboard based on Microsoft Azure and Power BI. It will help highlight the scientific fields that need further research funding.

Public and philanthropic investments in AMR R&D related to animal health vaccines

30.08.2021: Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) not only poses a global threat to public health but also has severe implications for the health and welfare of animal populations. We are pleased to publish a new report that focuses on the current state of R&D funding for animal health vaccines. The collated data and observations arising provide a knowledge base that will aid decision makers in ensuring that public and philanthropic resources are targeting the most promising approaches and areas of greatest impact.

Special thanks to OIE and Health for Animals for their insights and contributions to this report.

New collaboration between ICARS and the Global AMR R&D Hub

Translating evidence into action!

12.07.2021: The Global AMR R&D Hub and ICARS are pleased to announce a new partnership that will further strengthen their efforts to translate evidence into action to mitigate antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

The collaboration will harness the power of the Global AMR R&D Hub’s Dynamic Dashboard to explore the current landscape of Operational and Implementation Research within low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), in an effort to connect AMR interventions with concrete outcomes. In doing so, the partners hope to be able to develop a pathway from knowledge to shape policy, programmes and practice.

The Dynamic Dashboard’s Pipeline Gallery updated to include the most recent analysis by PEW and the WHO

09.06.2021: The recent analysis of the global pipeline of antibacterials in clinical development from PEW and the WHO highlighted a stark picture of a broken antibiotics market unable to keep pace with the need for new drugs and that urgent action is needed to spur antibiotic innovation. This updated research has now been consolidated within the Dynamic Dashboard’s Pipeline Gallery, providing a tool to help policy makers and stakeholders monitor the antibacterial pipeline.

Study Publication: National Policy Options for AMR Innovation

19.03.2021: What tools do National health systems have at their disposal to further reward the development and uptake of much needed new antibiotics and diagnostics?  Undertaken by the team at the Austrian Institute of Public Health (GÖG), the Global AMR R&D Hub is happy to publicly-release this important study today. This comprehensive review of available policy tools within pricing, reimbursement and procurement in ten G20 countries, includes concrete examples and suggestions for learning, leverage and implementation. This is one of three studies that were used to derive our recently-published recommendations put forward to the G7 and G20 for their ongoing reflections. Download the full report here and the accompanying policy brief here.

Accelerating Antimicrobial Development & Access

04.03.2021: The Hub is proud to put forward to the G7 & G20, key emerging insights from its forthcoming studies that it was tasked to undertake by its board of members and G20 Leaders. The results of our initial studies reiterate the challenges that remain in the post-market space and propose concrete steps forward in accelerating antimicrobial development and access for building a more secure future ecosystem.
