Amsterdam; The Netherlands / Helsinki; Finland (22 May, 2021): AMR Insights and The Global Antibiotic Resistance Foundation (TGARF) are happy to announce the global collaboration on combating Antimicrobial resistance (AMR). For professionals in the ‘One Health’ sectors worldwide who wish to prevent Antimicrobial resistance, AMR Insights offers relevant global information, specific education and extensive partnering opportunities. TGARF focuses on increasing the global awareness on AMR, especially related to governmental institutes, media, medical staff, authorities and patient platforms. Both parties are committed to eliminating AMR because they do not accept that millions of innocent people need to die as a result of resistant bacteria and other microorganisms. The parties have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to lay down the intentions to join forces.
Dr Maarten van Dongen, Director AMR Insights, said:
” AMR is a growing global problem. The key to successfully combating AMR is for professional organisations to cooperate and to complement each other wherever possible. Let’s tear down the walls around our organisations instead of building and strengthening them.”
This fits perfectly into TGARF’s strategy:
“By cooperating with the media, we will make governments, doctors, patient organisations much more aware of AMR. We see many opportunities in the global cooperation with AMR Insights.”
according to Stephanie van Rossum, COO of TGARF.
