FAO, OIE, WHO, UNDP and resource partners kick off the allocation of funds to combat against AMR

  04 April 2020

The OIE was joined by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Development Program Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office and resource partners as representatives of the Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Multi-Partner Trust Fund Steering Committee. The Committee is tasked with providing strategic direction to the Fund, allocating resources to support the implementation and evaluation of activities in pilot countries.

The AMR Multi-Partner Trust Fund supports the long-standing Tripartite partnership between FAO, OIE and WHO to combat the rising global threat of AMR through a One Health Approach. The fund was generously supported by the Governments of The Netherlands and Sweden during its launch and is happy to announce the recent contribution of the United Kingdom to the fund. Thanks to their contributions, the Fund has been able to launch the first Call for Concept Notes to address AMR priorities. The concept notes on Tripartite projects in pilot countries were reviewed during the first Steering Committee Meeting.

A total of 13 concept notes have been received and reviewed by the Steering Committee in this first round, and they demonstrate the continued effective cooperation of the Tripartite and national partners. Activities proposed are strongly linked to the implementation of National Action Plans on AMR and include an ambitious range of activities to support the achievement of cross-sectoral One Health outcomes. The outcomes of the Steering Committee meeting have resulted in the selection of priority interventions, particularly at country level which will benefit from the mobilisation of Trust Fund resources through the Tripartite organisations.
