ReAct

Vision Antibiotic resistance is a complex and ever-changing phenomenon deeply influenced by microbial ecology, human behavior and globalization. ReAct was one of the first international networks to articulate the complex nature of antibiotic resistance and its drivers, calling for a holistic view of the problem and solutions that engage all of society. They believe that access to affordable prevention and effective treatment of bacterial infections is part of everyone’s right to health. Theirvision is “A world free from fear of untreatable infections“. They believe that change towards this vision will depend on engaging with social movements, civil society, community- and consumer organizations, academia, policy makers and those individuals, networks or institutions that generate and analyze health-related knowledge. Values ReAct works across disciplines to identify and promote best practices, innovative and ecologically grounded solutions to contain antibiotic resistance that contribute to universal health coverage, poverty reduction and global development. They view antibiotic effectiveness as an essential public good and as a potentially non-renewable resource. They promote context-specific solutions to account for the diversity of systems of health care, cultural practices, resource availability, geography and other relevant factors. They promote an ecosystem approach to antibiotic resistance to replace the dominant war metaphor of bacteria as their ‘enemy’, with an understanding of the essential role of microbes and microbial ecology in the health of humans. They advocate for the need to see infection prevention and sustainable access to effective antibiotics as a critical component in achieving several of the Sustainable Development Goals. They support access for all in need while working for maximum and context specific conservation efforts of existing and new antibiotics. They are independent of the private pharmaceutical industry and do not accept any financial support from it.
