Antimicrobial Resistance

Antimicrobial Resistance Multi-Partner Trust Fund (AMR MPTF)

Status: Ongoing

Donor: Multi-donor: Governments of Germany (through the German Agency for International Cooperation – GIZ), the Netherlands, Sweden (including through the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency – Sida) and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (using UK aid funding through the Fleming Fund)and

Intervention areas:

  • Ten countries (Cambodia, Ethiopia, Ghana, Indonesia, Kenya, Morocco, Peru, Tajikistan, Senegal and Zimbabwe). More country programmes are under the development.
  • One global programme with four technical components. They are Integrated surveillance system for AMR/AMU; One Health legal assessment tool for AMR; Environmental dimension of AMR; Monitoring and Evaluation framework for the National Action Plan on AMR.  

Period:  AMR MPTF started in 2019 and currently continues to end 2030.  One project cycle lasts 3 years maximum.

Objectives:  The AMR MPTF is a significant instrument aligned with the Quadripartite Strategic Framework for collaboration on AMR which has as its goal, preserving antimicrobial efficacy and ensuring sustainable and equitable access to antimicrobials for responsible and prudent use in human, animal and plant health contributing to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.  

The objectives of the fund include:

  • To reduce levels and slower development of AMR.
  • To maintain the ability to treat infectious diseases with effective and safe antimicrobials.
  • To reduce the impact of AMR on human and animal health, the environment, and economic development for populations worldwide.
