About Us

The Global Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Research and Development (R&D) Hub was launched in May 2018, following a call from G20 Leaders, to address challenges and improve coordination and collaboration in global AMR R&D using a One Health approach. The Global AMR R&D Hub supports global priority setting and evidence-based decision-making on allocation of resources for AMR R&D through the identification of gaps, overlaps and potential for cross-sectoral collaboration in AMR R&D. It is a global partnership currently consisting of 17 countries, the European Commission and two philanthropic foundations. Our work is steered by a Board of Members and supported by a Secretariat, based in Berlin. The Secretariat is a small but committed and motivated team dedicated to fulfilling the mandate of the Global AMR R&D Hub and creating positive impact on global health.
