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 organizations, individuals and stakeholders.
ReAct 15 years
This year ReAct is celebrating 15 years of action on antibiotic resistance. The story of ReAct started 15 years ago with a small group of people, many who are still with the network today. Here you find articles, a newly published report and webinar that we have produced to celebrate our 15 years of action on antibiotic resistance.
ReAct is a 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.
We share information, encourage action and influence policy via nodes on five continents.
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.
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 on AMR ensures a sustainable response that takes into account the needs, challenges and priorities of low- and middle-income countries.
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.
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.
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.
Since its inception in 2005, ReAct’s main funder has been the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).
