[Activity Report] “AMR & JAPAN’S G7 PRESIDENCY: A Call for Pull Incentives to Drive Innovation” (December 13, 2022)
The Global Coalition on Aging (GCOA) released a report regarding Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) countermeasures in preparation of the 2023 G7 Hiroshima summit.
This report is based on discussions from an online roundtable held in September 2022. The roundtable brought together public health, economic, and policy experts from Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Sweden, with Ms. Yui Kohno, a manager at Health and Global Policy Institute, as a speaker.
The roundtable and the report propose the following four critical actions to address AMR that Japan, as the chairing country, should take in preparation for the 2023 G7 Hiroshima Summit.
- Implement a pilot pull incentive to stimulate antibiotic innovation based on best-fit model for Japan.
- Build policy guidance on AMR into the Health and Finance Ministers’ meetings and communiques.
- Communicate the urgency for AMR policy action through Japan’s G7 Presidency at the Summit level.
- Invite collaboration and partnership with other countries, both those already leading on AMR action and those seeking inspiration and guidance.
