Antimicrobial Resistance Funders' Forum

The UK research base in antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is supported by a range of funders, including public sector organisations, charities and industry. The Antimicrobial Resistance Funders’ Forum (AMRFF) has been established to provide a forum for the sharing of information on activities relating to AMR, and in particular anti-bacterial resistance, by the various member organisations.

We are some of the key funders and stakeholders supporting AMR research in the UK. The Forum provides a framework for a more coordinated approach to tackling AMR research to maximise impact on national and international policies and activities.


The key elements of the work of the AMRFF

  • Strategically overview the UK AMR research base with an understanding of its output, skill base, resources and impact
  • Create a common vision for the future of AMR research and its implementation
  • Add value to existing programmes of work through coordination, synergy of activities and gap awareness
  • Coordinate and/or support the initiation of unilateral, bilateral or multilateral funding and delivery programmes
  • Raise the understanding and profile of AMR research base in the UK and internationally through proactive communication with all stakeholders


Membership of the AMRFF includes the Research Councils, Health Departments, Governmental bodies as well as charities with a direct or indirect interest in AMR and which provide significant R&D budgets in the area.
