“Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and Pfizer set up centre in New Delhi to combat AMR”
“The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and Pfizer will set up a centre in New Delhi, to combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
The project will help address the growing AMR threat in India, Pfizer said on the agreement signed between the two organisations.
The joint initiative will implement a series of interventions, ranging from AMR stewardship programmes for nursing homes to scaling up of the ongoing AMR surveillance network and creating awareness around responsible use of antibiotics.
Pfizer has provided an initial grant of ₹6.97 crore for the initiative with a provision to scale up further as the programme expands.”
