About us

Action on Antibiotic Resistance

Created in 2005 ReAct is one of the first international independent networks to articulate the complex nature of antibiotic resistance and its drivers. ReAct was initiated with the goal to be a global catalyst, advocating and stimulating for global engagement on antibiotic resistance by collaborating with a broad range of organisations, individuals and stakeholders.

A global network

ReAct is global network dedicated to the problem of antibiotic resistance. We work in a multidisciplinary team which includes microbiologists, physicians, veterinarians, communication experts and global health specialists. Learn more about us here.

Current focus

National Action Plans on Antimicrobial Resistance

Countries develop and implement National Action Plans with respect to sustainable access to effective antibiotics, that are inclusive of civil society, local community views and based on situational analyses with ReAct’s support.

Movement building

Coalitions, communities of practice and movements are strengthened and extended to address antibiotic resistance through narratives and action that contribute to universal health coverage, poverty reduction, food justice and environmental sustainability.

Globally coordinated governance

Globally coordinated governance on AMR ensures a sustainable response that takes into account the needs, challenges and priorities of low- and middle-income countries.

Public health driven innovation

A public health driven and end-to-end approach to innovation that enables sustainable ac-cess to effective antibiotics in low- and middle-income countries is broadly supported.

Foundations

Our vision and values

ReAct’s perspective is shaped by the reality of the five continents where we are based. Our vision and values are guided by the principle that solutions to contain antibiotic resistance must contribute to improving universal health coverage, global poverty reduction and support global development for all.

Our history

ReAct was initiated with the goal to be a global catalyst, advocating and stimulating for global engagement on the issue of antibiotic resistance by collaborating with a broad range of organizations, individuals and stakeholders.
