The Global Antibiotic Research and Development Partnership’s (GARDP) lifesaving work is possible through smart, effective partnerships. GARDP brings together governments, the pharmaceutical and biotech industry, academia, civil society and people affected by diseases to develop treatments for drug-resistant infections, and to ensure they are available for every person who needs them. Partnerships are at the heart of our success in developing new and improved treatments. GARDP are currently working with more than 50 partners in 20 countries.

“Tackling the threat of drug resistant infections requires an urgent and truly global response. Critical to achieving this is GARDP’s public-private partnership approach and commitment to ensuring new and improved antibiotics are available for every person who needs them, wherever they live.”

– Glenda Gray, President & CEO, South African Medical Research Council

GARDP is calling on the world to support the delivery of five new treatments by 2025 to tackle the drug-resistant infections that pose the greatest threat to global health and economic security. GARDP is seeking €500 million to develop these treatments. By acting now, collectively and with urgency, we can prevent a post-antibiotic era
