A Grand Bargain for Antimicrobial Procurement: Leveraging Purchasing Systems to Address AMR

June 30, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Join the Center for Global Development for a conversation on new purchasing systems for antimicrobials and the grand bargain stakeholders must strike to govern the global market. This discussion will draw from a new landscape review of antibiotic procurement systems, which synthesized existing research and thinking on how antimicrobials are procured and ways to improve the current purchasing system. This research was undertaken as part of CGD’s working group, A Grand Bargain for Antimicrobial Procurement. Speakers will discuss strategies for improving access, stewardship, and innovation for antimicrobials; promising new procurement models; and the rights and responsibilities of stakeholders in both LMICs and HICs to facilitate a healthy pipeline of antimicrobials that defends against AMR.
