Sweden applies for membership to global anti-microbial resistance research hub

Sweden, which is considered a driving force behind the international work on anti-microbial resistance (AMR), is now applying for membership to the Global AMR Research & Development Hub. The Hub is a policy network that aims to coordinate AMR research initiatives around the world. However, to date, Sweden has not been part of this G20 network, which currently consists of 15 countries and three organizations. 

Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, the UK, and the US are members of the Hub, alongside the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, European Commission, and Wellcome Trust. The World Health Organization and Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development act as observers.
