Fixing the AMR pipeline isn’t just about developing new treatments. To stand strong against AMR we need to put public health needs at the center of antibiotic drug development. Current antibiotics are not reaching people who need them and new ones aren’t being developed where they are most needed.
The webinar will be an opportunity to not only present GARDP’s new five-year strategy, but also highlight our achievements over the past five years in developing new and improved treatments for drug-resistant infections, including neonatal sepsis, serious bacterial infections and gonorrhoea, and ensure that they reach the people who need them most, including children, women and the elderly.
Over the past five years, through our partnership model, GARDP has successfully developed a comprehensive portfolio of antibiotic treatments and we are well on our way of reaching our goal of delivering five treatments by 2025 (with four treatments in our current portfolio). We are also pioneering new access models with our innovator, manufacturing and distribution partners.
Our unique not-for-profit antibiotic R&D model focuses on integrating R&D and access, negotiating public-private collaboration and licensing agreements, and working in partnership with all key stakeholders—including scientists, clinicians, industry, manufacturers, regulators, donors and civil society—to coordinate efforts in the antibiotic pipeline of drug development and access with the goal of addressing public health needs.
Our new five-year strategy outlines how GARDP is a global solution to AMR, working with partners to create a new global antibiotic pipeline that is driven by public health need rather than profit.
