Public Health Emergency - Leading a Nation Prepared
CARB-X is a non-profit public-private partnership, founded by BARDA and Wellcome Trust, dedicated to accelerating antibacterial research to tackle the global rising threat of drug-resistant bacteria.
With the addition of the
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the UK Ministry of Health, CARB-X became the world’s largest transnational public-private partnership focused on developing new drugs and diagnostics to combat antibiotic resistance.
BARDA forged a new partnership with Opiant Pharmaceuticals to develop a fast acting, longer lasting drug to
address the ongoing opioid crisis and protect Americans from 21st century health security threats.
BARDA has also entered into a
first-of-its-kind partnership with the Department of Defense and Spero Therapeutics to develop an oral antibiotic to treat drug-resistant infections and biothreats.
ASPR reached out in new ways to stakeholders, sponsoring listening sessions; medical countermeasures outreach sessions; a sepsis summit; a
National Disaster Medical System training summit;
BARDA Industry Day; congressional briefings and tours; and through the Ministerial Meeting of the
Global Health Security Initiative.
