The Global AMR R&D Hub is an international initiative for governmental and non-governmental funders of research and development in the field of anti-microbial resistance (AMR). The Hub was officially launched during the World Health Assembly on May 22nd 2018 in Geneva, following a call of the G20 Leaders at the G20 summit 2017 in Hamburg.
The main goal of the Global AMR R&D Hub is to provide comprehensive information to support R&D funders in an efficient allocation of available funds, thus avoiding duplication of efforts and enabling joint actions. The Hub does not act as a funding body itself. Decisions on allocation of funds are taken sovereignly by the members.
