Global Health Research Priorities for Responding to the AMR Silent Pandemic

Tuesday 13 June 2021 | Webinar recording available below | Read the webinar report

The Global Health Network platform operates like an open, trusted online science park for health research and is used by thousands of researchers world-wide, especially in limited resource settings, with the focus on Global Health. Within this platform we have developed the AMR Knowledge Hub to support stronger coordination, knowledge sharing and faster progress in AMR research and practice across the Globe. It provides an open resource for a global community of practice for all researchers, healthcare and laboratory teams in all organisations working in AMR globally. The AMR Knowledge Hub is dynamic as we continuously review the global AMR knowledge and research landscape to identify gaps and needs on access to resources, guidelines and policy recommendations.

This TGHN Research in Focus webinar had the following objectives:

1. To introduce The Global Health Network AMR Knowledge Hub to the global AMR community
2. Speakers shared experiences from the field on research and knowledge gaps to be addressed for an effective global AMR pandemic response
3. Global experts discussed how the COVID-19 pandemic response experience could be used to combat the silent pandemic of AMR in LMICs
