ReAct - Action on Antibiotic Resistance


Based on five continents ReAct advocates for the adoption of a holistic view of the problem of antibiotic resistance and solutions that engage all of society. We believe that sustainable access to affordable and effective prevention and treatment of bacterial infections is part of everyone’s right to health.

ReAct takes a global perspective by advocating that responses and solutions must be informed by and adapted to countries’ individual contexts and realities.
