About AMR

 

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) threatens the effective prevention and treatment of an ever-increasing range of infections caused by bacteria, parasites, viruses and fungi. Although the development of resistance is a natural consequence of using antimicrobials,  in the past decades a rapid increase of resistance rates and the emergence of new resistance mechanisms have been observed, driven by the overuse and inappropriate use of antimicrobials in both human health care and food animal husbandry. In addition, once resistant microorganisms emerge, their rapid spread is made possible by poor hygiene and poor infection prevention in human health care, animal husbandry and, food and water systems. With very few new antimicrobials being developed, a future without effective antimicrobials is no longer unthinkable. Harmonized and immediate action on a global scale is warranted.

 

 

AMR support activities

Countries in the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) AMR Action Package have agreed to support work being coordinated by WHO, FAO, and OIE to develop an integrated and global package of activities to combat AMR. Many of the participating countries have substantial experience dealing with AMR and use their experience to contribute to AMR control or surveillance projects in other countries through bilateral or multilateral collaborations. To prevent duplicate of actions and to improve collaboration and alignment of activities, countries in the GHSA AMR Action Package share information about current AMR support activities as well as expertises that can be offered by the donor countries in current or future collaborations. The table below shows ongoing AMR support activities as listed by the donor countries. Search through the activities by recipient country/region, donor country or institute, or type of expertise offered.
