New partnership to improve antimicrobial resistance research
The Global Health Network and the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (BSAC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) establishing a framework for collaboration that can maximise the impact of shared antimicrobial resistance education, policy and advocacy efforts.
This collaboration brings together The Global Health Network’s AMR Knowledge Hub and the Global Antimicrobial Stewardship Partnership Hub (GASPH). The AMR Knowledge Hub is a free resource and global community of practice (CoP), open to all researchers, healthcare and laboratory teams in all organisations working in AMR research. GASPH is an open-access, global, AMR learning platform founded and run by BSAC for the global AMR community. Through supporting AMR research and stewardship globally both hubs are committed to tackling one of the biggest healthcare – and humanitarian – challenges we collectively face.
The aim is to incrementally grow the resources and activities of the two AMR hubs with their respective partners and collaborators, moving towards the vision articulated by Wernli D et al (Lancet ID 2020) of creating a unified, multi-stakeholder, open-access, global learning platform and community of practice for AMR.
