ABPI response to £210 million DHSC antimicrobial awareness funding
The Department of Health and Social Care has announced £210 million worth of funding as part of the Fleming Fund’s activities to tackle AMR in countries across Asia and Africa over the next three years.
Claire Machin, ABPI Executive Director, International Policy & UK Competitiveness said: “In the face of the daunting challenge posed by antimicrobial resistance, continued funding into this global issue remains a key priority. Advancing research, surveillance, and international collaboration on innovative solutions to combat AMR through a One Health approach is essential.
“The pharmaceutical industry has also stepped up support and invested £1.2 billion to bring new antibiotics to market by 2030 through the AMR Action Fund. Commitments from both our industry and policymakers worldwide mean we can counteract the threat of AMR and secure the well-being of generations to come."
