Journey towards a better antimicrobial pipeline; is there light at the end of the tunnel?


2 Sep 2019

The Global Action Plan on antimicrobial resistance (AMR), endorsed at the World Health Assembly in May 2015, recognised the need for sustainable and increased investment in new medicines, diagnostic tools, vaccines and other interventions. In 2016, the global facing independent review on AMR, led by Lord O’Neill, recommended a global system of market entry rewards. This was also recognised by the G20 leaders’ statement in 2017 which committed to exploring practical market incentive options. Many other governments and international organisations have since been focusing on how to make this happen.
