To address the “silent” AMR pandemic, it is critical for AMR researchers to prioritise the study of ‘what’ works, ‘when’ it works, ‘why’ it works, and ‘what’ elements are necessary for its success.

Different questions need to be asked in different settings and we need all types of studies to be undertaken. Using shared and open protocols and tools can raise research standards and enable easier and better data sharing.

The Global Health Network is running this crowdsourcing initiative to support a faster implementation of research studies on AMR. In addition to resource sharing of study protocols and toolkits from excellent studies already running, there is also the added benefit of bringing standardisation and sharing solutions that are pragmatic and have been evidenced to work. On this platform, research groups can share their approaches in what they are measuring and how - through their SOPs and training resources. This concept strongly focuses on sharing the process and framework for the study, with materials that reflect the context-specific nature of running a study in individual settings.

Research teams conducting various studies into AMR are currently providing access to their resources in the form of a ‘research implementation map’.

Are you running an AMR study – please can you share your SOPs and study resources? 

There is a real and immediate need for study tools designed to be practical and appropriate for every clinical settings, and especially those with more constrained resources. Your expertise and experiences could really help colleagues across the world to set up their studies and trials quickly and easily and to conduct better research.

Research teams working across Africa, Asia and Latin America are setting up new studies. They are asking for others, already running studies in these regions to share their resources. By sharing your resources, you will help them get started faster because they will be using what we know already works!

If you would like to contribute, please let us know what your study is about and share our study SOPs, training, consent forms, community engagement materials, or your top tips for getting ethics and regulatory approvals etc.

We will acknowledge your work and this will increase the impact of your efforts and speed up gaining global data to address this silent pandemic.

SOPs = Standard Operating Procedures
