Overview of country activity

In 2013, Vietnam became the first country in the WHO’s Western Pacific Region to publish its National Action Plan on antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

Global Grants

In 2017, with Fleming Fund support, the Vietnamese Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, adopted a National Action Plan for the management of antibiotic use and control of AMR in livestock production and aquaculture.

Vietnam has used the FAO ATLASS tool to assess and develop its veterinary laboratories.

Country Grants

The Fleming Fund’s first Country Grant was awarded in Vietnam in 2015, as an early pilot grant for the programme. The grant, awarded to the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit (OUCRU) Vietnam was to support the OUCRU and the National Hospital for Tropical Diseases to develop a national AMR reference laboratory and initiate a surveillance programme for AMR in Vietnam.

This project has been a huge success, as evidenced by the formal opening of the National AMR Reference Laboratory at the National Hospital for Tropical Diseases in Vietnam on 5th February 2018. The inauguration ceremony was led by Minister of Health, Nguyen Thi Kim Tien, and the UK Chief Medical Officer, Dame Sally Davies.
