India joins the Global AMR Research and Development Hub

India joins the Global AMR Research and Development Hub

India becomes a member of the Global Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Research and Development (R&D) Hub.

The announcement was made by the Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science & Technology in New Delhi.

The Global Antimicrobial Resistance Research and Development hub now has 16 member nations. The hub also has the European Commission, two philanthropic foundations as members and four international organisations as observers.

The partnership works to address challenges and improve coordination and collaboration in the global antimicrobial resistance research and development. The issue of antimicrobial resistance requires global action with active participation from all world regions and One Health sectors.

The global research and development hub on antimicrobial resistance was launched in May 2018 on the sidelines of the 71st session of the World Health Assembly. The hub was set up following a call from the G20 member nations in 2017.

India at Global Antimicrobial Resistance R&D hub

  • India aims to work with all the hub partners to boost their existing capabilities, resources and collectively focus on new R&D intervention to address infections that are drug resistant.
  • Antimicrobial resistance refers to a microbe’s ability to resist the effects of drugs that could once treat it successfully. The emergence and spread of antimicrobial resistance is currently unchecked around the world.
