Overview of country activity
Tanzania launched its National Action Plan on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in 2017. The Fleming Fund was able to support the country in development of this plan and its national laboratory surveillance plan for AMR, through our grants to the WHO and FAO.
The Fleming Fund has supported Tanzania through a Professional Veterinary Services national bridging workshop, run by the OIE in 2017.
In addition, Tanzania has field-tested the WHO protocol for monitoring antibiotic use in hospitals, and is planning a country wide survey on antimicrobial use.
Tanzania has also used the FAO ATLASS tool to assess and develop its veterinary laboratories, and has received support for assessment of its legal and regulatory framework for AMR.
The Fleming Fund has worked closely with the Tanzania National AMR Coordinating Committee to identify key priorities in the National Acton Plan that can be supported through a Fleming Fund Country Grant. The Request For Proposals to deliver this grant is now closed and applications are under review.
