AMR Action Plan
The National Multisectoral Steering Committee developed a National Action Plan (2017-2022) to tackle AMR and held their first meeting in April 2018. The Fleming Fund is working with the National Health Laboratory, as the National Centre for AMR, and Fondation Mérieux to develop a Country Grant to support AMR surveillance in the human health sector. The Fleming Fund is also working with the Livestock Breeding and Veterinary Department (LBVD), alongside the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), to develop an AMR surveillance system in poultry.
