The AMR Think-Do-Tank, Geneva International, is a center for brainstorming and implementation research, bearing on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) – which includes, in the UN definition, resistance to drugs against viral, bacterial, fungal and parasitic diseases. The AMR Think-Do-Tank's objectives are to ensure a better response to AMR through consulting, symposia, meetings, implementation research, publications and online courses on AMR, with a focus on “One Health.”
AMR Think-Do-Tank, Geneva international, brings together a global, multidisciplinary task force to examine and implement approaches to the many-faceted aspects of AMR infections prevention, management, and resolution
A looming crisis
“Left unchecked, antimicrobial resistance (AMR) will roll back a century of medical progress, damage the environment, interrupt food production, cause more people to fall into extreme poverty and imperil global health security.”
Dr Tedros, WHO, May 2018
A systemic problem
The spread of AMR is a complex multi-facets problem. Ensuring and preserving high healthcare standards require a ‘One Health’ approach, which is, coordinated expertise and actions in many areas such as environment, food chain, medical facilities, infrastructures, social behavior, and proper management and regulations
The AMR Think-Do-Tank gather global experts to develop specific and fundamental actions (research implementation) in various countries and locations, to fight against drug-resistance. We also organize seminars, meetings, and are developing webinars online courses to a wide audience.
