Contribution to the World Health Organization (WHO) to support countries with antimicrobial resistance (AMR) National Action Plans and development of global protocols for collection of AMR data.


The objectives of the Fleming Fund grant with WHO are to: 1. support countries to develop National Action Plans aligned with our regional focus in Sub-Saharan Africa, South and South-East Asia; 2. develop a One Health surveillance protocol on antimicrobial resistance focused on Escherichia coli (E. coli); 3. develop, pilot and roll out methods for antibiotic consumption and use monitoring; 4. Develop and support countries to implement of a new classification of antibiotics within the Essential Medicines List (EML) and the AWaRe categorisation to encourage rational use of antibiotics; 5. to support a deeper understanding of SF antimicrobials and their impact upon AMR; and 6. strengthen the coordination across WHO, FAO and OIE in supporting the One Health agenda globally, and more specifically in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs)


Projects funded through Fleming Fund will benefit people in low- and middle-income countries, where the burden of drug resistant infection is greater.
