Résistance aux antimicrobiens

Impliquer le secteur agricole et agro-alimentaire pour combattre la RA, sur base d’une approche «une santé»

Title of the project: Impliquer le secteur agricole et agro-alimentaire en Afrique sub-saharienne et en Asie du sud-est pour combattre la résistance aux antimicrobiens, sur base d’une approche «une santé»

Status: En cours

Donor: Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (Fleming Fund)

Target Countries: Selected countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and South and South-east Asia

Period: September 2016 to March 2019

Objectives: The objective of the project is to minimize the transmission of antimicrobial resistant microorganisms and/or determinants via the food chain and food and agriculture environment. In this context  the project is providing direct support to 12 countries, to strengthen the engagement of the food and agriculture sector in addressing AMR, through the development and implementation of multisectoral National Action Plans. In addition, the project will support additional countries in South and South-east Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, primarily in the development of their National Action Plans through regional and sub-regional activities.

Activities and outputs

Activities to achieve the following outputs will be tailored to country needs, based on initial situation analysis and local needs assessments.

  • Multi-sectoral National Action Plans (NAPs) aligned with global recommendations and standards are in place in targeted countries.
  • Regulatory frameworks are assessed and strengthened.
  • Laboratory capacities and related infrastructures of the food and agriculture sector are strengthened to collect and share data on AMR and antimicrobial residues and actively contribute to integrated surveillance on AMR.
  • Good practices in the food and agriculture sector, based on internationally agreed instruments, are available to, and implemented in target countries.

The work will be coordinated and implemented in collaboration with WHO and OIE using a “One Health” approach”.
