G20 Health Ministers point out JPIAMR as key initiative to support

When the G20 Health Ministers recently met in Germany, antimicrobial resistance (AMR) was at the very top of their agenda. Germany who holds the G20 presidency described it as an” important breakthrough”, that all nations agreed to address the growing antibiotic resistance in the world.

In the declaration from the meeting, the G20 Health Ministers pointed out JPIAMR as one of the key initiatives to support, by concluding “We commit to broaden the voluntary financial support for these initiatives. We call on other countries, philanthropic organizations, academia and the private sector to support these initiatives”.

JPIAMR supports new evidence and innovations that reduce the burden of antimicrobial resistance through coordinated global collaborative research in Europe and around the world. Today 24 countries have joined JPIAMR as members. The collaborative platform is now internationally recognised.
