ICMRA Calls for Global Collaboration to Fight Antimicrobial Resistance
The International Coalition of Medicines Regulatory Authorities (ICMRA) urged regulatory agencies around the globe to step up their efforts to fight antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
The ICMRA also called on drugmakers to put more resources into research and development of new antimicrobials that will work when others fail. Alternatives to antimicrobials are also needed to lessen their use, the coalition said.
“Infection prevention and control is the foundation of modern healthcare and innovation to combat AMR must coincide with advancements in other areas to ensure a stable global health system,” ICMRA said.
