Uniting against antibiotic resistance: ‘5 by 25’

Tags: , , | September 25th, 2019

Our friends at GARDP are calling upon the global community to support its goal to develop and deliver five new treatments by 2025 in response to the growing burden of antibiotic resistant infections.

Antibiotics have radically transformed our world by making previously incurable illnesses treatable. As a result, not only has our wellbeing significantly improved, but millions of lives have been saved. However, this remarkable progress is threatened by the spread of antibiotic resistance and requires an urgent global response.

We need solutions that will deliver for global public health. No one country or sector can do it alone. The GARDP model of public-private partnerships is key to preventing the world form entering a post-antibiotic era. Only together can we tackle this impending crisis!

GARDP invite you to join them at this year’s World Health Summit in Berlin to learn how their ‘5 BY 25’ goal will accelerate the development and delivery of five new and improved treatments to address antibiotic-resistant infections that pose the greatest threat to health and development. These new treatments will focus on the priority pathogens identified by the World Health Organization, and current unmet needs for diseases and key populations.

If you are interested in attending please write to ‘contact@gardp.org‘ by 17 October 2019.
