ReAct: Action on Antibiotic Resistance

Time

2006 - present

Description

KI is a co-founder of React, an independent global network addressing the threat of antimicrobial resistance. Since its start in 2005, React has become a strong voice on antibiotic resistance (ABR) policy in the global arena, including advocacy and the “innovation track”, i.e. pushing politically for a new business model to facilitate and reinvigorate research and development for new, effective antibiotics.  Research results have been packaged for decision makers, with political leadership by the Swedish Ministry of Health. The ongoing policy dialogue is both local and global. KI is a co-founder of React, an independent global network addressing the threat of antimicrobial resistance.
