Delivering the SDGs: Focus on Industry’s Actions in the Fight Against AMR

Geneva, CH

Join Denise Delaney at this Global Health Centre at the Graduate Institute hosted launch of the first AMR Industry Alliance progress report.

This event will underline the key role of the fight against AMR to ensure we deliver on SDG 3 (but also 1, 2 and 8) and focus specifically on how the life science industry could contribute: What actions have already been undertaken, where does industry have the most added-value, where do we need to further collaborations to succeed?

The report serves to benchmark progress, set targets for the future and identify gaps where further efforts may be required in the fight against antimicrobial resistance.

In addition, global health experts will offer their recommendations to set aspirational goals for the industry and incentives further collaborations with governments.

The report compiles the results of how members of are meeting the Alliance’s goals, in four different areas: Research and Science, Access, Appropriate Use, and Environment. It is the first attempt to aggregate and report the diverse industry activities relating the development of AMR.
