Proposals under review
Round Two grants support improvements in external quality assurance of laboratory testing, training, quality diagnostics, and policy and advocacy.
This grant helps improve data sharing for global AMR planning and advocacy. Policy makers need robust evidence and data to make good recommendations, and currently, many countries still limit data sharing. The grantee will be tasked with improving data sharing at the regional level and ensuring policy makers are aware of the evidence and recommendations that already exist regarding AMR. They will work with regional bodies to identify barriers to data sharing and policy analysis and advocate for better data use and policy action. The goal of the grant it to get key data and evidence into the hands of decision makers, so that they can develop and implement policies to fight AMR.
