New platform for safer antibiotics production

  19 February 2020

In order to tackle the escalating problem of antimicrobial resistance, a new collaboration platform has been recently launched.

The platform, initiated by Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), will bring together people from civil society, governments and the pharmaceutical industry. It could mean a breakthrough for the responsible manufacturing of antibiotics and reduce the risk of the industry itself contributing to the spread of antimicrobial resistance.         

Nicolai Schaaf, Programme Manager of the Pharma Team, SIWI said, “Reducing emissions of antibiotics from manufacturing is a shared responsibility. This requires changes both in industry practices and when it comes to market demand and regulation. Acknowledging this as a shared objective in the fight against antimicrobial resistance is the starting point for our collaboration platform.”
