Antimicrobial Resistance: Getting a New Impetus in Russia
Since 2010, through their Tripartite Alliance, the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) have been raising countries’ awareness on the issue of AMR.
The importance the Russian Federation attaches to international cooperation on combating AMR in food and agriculture is reflected in the concrete support it provides to FAO’s food and nutrition‑related initiatives. A Russian Federation-funded FAO project of nearly US$3.3 million was helping national authorities of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan address the threats posed by antimicrobial resistant microorganisms in agriculture and food systems.
During an international conference on “Food Safety and AMR” held in Moscow in December 2019 authorities representing animal health, public health and food safety sectors from project participating countries in Europe and Central Asia region exchanged experiences and best practices on how to reduce AMR, assess multifaceted food safety risks, enhance multilateral dialogue, expand international and interregional sectoral cooperation and promote partnerships between different stakeholders.
In addition, Russia is a member of the G20 Global Research and Development Center for AMR (Global R&D Hub).
