G7 Finance Ministers’ Statement on Actions to Support Antibiotic Development

G7 Finance Ministers have today (13 December 2021) agreed a G7 statement on Actions to Support Antibiotic Development, aiming to strengthen G7 preparedness against the “silent pandemic” of antimicrobial resistance.

All G7 members recognise AMR as requiring a multi-year and multi-stakeholder effort.

All G7 members have committed to expedite the implementation of their existing AMR Action Plans and related strategies, and to take additional specific and appropriate steps to address antibiotic market failure and create the right economic conditions to preserve essential existing antibiotics and ensure their access, strengthen AMR antibiotic research and development, and bring new drugs to market where they meet identified public health needs. 

See Annex for examples of G7 action.
