Virtual Conference “Translating AMR R&D mapping into policy and action”

On 2 December 2020 the Global AMR R&D Hub held a virtual conference on the theme of Translating AMR R&D mapping into policy and action. The conference was held over three sessions that had three different focus areas. The recordings from all three sessions are now available at  along with the conference report. It highlights the 19 recommendations that arose from the discussions, which included establishing a funding consortium comprised of Global AMR R&D Hub Board members; identify the R&D priorities for animal health; and setting global targets for new compounds and health technologies required to meet public health needs. The recommendations will be considered by the Global AMR R&D Hub’s Board of Members who will respond in 2021.
