Overview of country activity
Zambia launched its multi-sectoral National Action Plan on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in 2017.
The Fleming Fund was able to support the development of Zambia’s National Action Plan through our Global Grant to the FAO, this will be available shortly on the WHO library. Zambia has also used the ATLASS tool to assess and develop its veterinary laboratories which will ultimately provide a baseline when exploring a Country Grant to help develop laboratory capacity.
Through the Global Grant to FAO, the Fleming Fund will continue to support Zambia with AMR surveillance in the food and agriculture sectors, review of national policies and legislation to address AMR and antimicrobial use and promote the adoption of good practices in food and agriculture to minimize the threat of AMR.
The Fleming Fund has worked with Government of Zambia's AMR Coordinating Committee (AMRCC) to develop a Request For Proposals (RFP) for a grant that can support the implementation of key priorities from the countries National Action Plan.
The aim is to support Zambia to develop a costed operational workplan for sustained and expanded AMR and antimicrobial use (AMU) surveillance, strengthen One Health governance structures and also improve the microbiology laboratory capacity and capability in human and animal health sectors.
