Antimicrobial Resistance in Germany 2019
In May 2019, an expert UK delegation travelled to Germany. The delegation met with German federal officials, academics and commercial entities from sixteen antimicrobial resistance (AMR) related organisations and learnt about many programmes that could directly benefit from collaboration and joint ventures with organisations involved in AMR in the UK.
Abstract from outcome report:
The Global Expert Mission to Germany on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) assured the UK delegation of the commonalities the UK and Germany share as it relates to combating the escalating global threat of AMR. The countries clearly share the same concerns, pinpoint the relevance of innovation, and agree that joining forces in combating AMR is of key importance.
Germany and the UK have unique capabilities and technologies that could assist other nations to address AMR, including in LMICs. In essence, there are opportunities to bring organisations from both countries together that would allow greater output than could be achieved if they acted independently. This Global Expert Mission has defined a number of objectives and related follow-up actions that the UK should consider taking forward.
