Announcing the Mapping Antimicrobial Resistance and Antimicrobial Use Partnership (MAAP) project
The Fleming Fund is delighted to announce the MAAP project initiated through round one of the Regional Grant programme.
The Mapping Antimicrobial Resistance and Antimicrobial Use Partnership (MAAP) project is being undertaken through a consortium of the African Society for Laboratory Medicine (ASLM), the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy (CDDEP), IQVIA Solutions (Pty) Ltd , Africa CDC, West African Health Organisation (WAHO), the Eastern, Central and Southern African Community (ECSA) and Innovative Support to Emergencies, Diseases and Disasters (InSTEDD).
The MAAP project is funded through the Fleming Fund's Regional Grants programme and the project aims to collect and share data on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and antimicrobial use (AMU), initially across 12 countries in West, East and Southern Africa. Specifically the MAAP project will:
- collect existing data to improve baseline spatio-temporal mapping of AMR and AMU and assess whether data gaps in Africa are related to gaps in diagnostics or low levels of reporting.
- digitize and analyse previously unusable, paper-based data.
- identify areas for improving countries’ ability to collect quality data in the future.
- increase the volume and quality of such data from Africa.
The MAAP grant activity will align with other Fleming Fund Regional Grant in Asia and the Global AMR Research (GRAM) project, whilst supporting the Country Grant programme in the region.
