Introduction

The World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) under the One Health approach and in their commitment to fight Resistance to Antimicrobials (AMR), developed a tripartite project for the implementation of the National Action Plans, called: WORKING TOGETHER TO FIGHT ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE.

This project financed by the European Union has a duration of 3 years (2020/2022) and it involves 7 Latin American countries.

More information on the National Action Plans, here below (Spanish only).

This project is based on 4 pillars: 

  1. Support the development and evaluation of the implementation of National Action Plans against AMR under the “One Health” approach. 
  2. Strengthen the surveillance and control of AMR and the use of human and veterinary antimicrobials in accordance with international standards. 
  3. Encourage the private sector to participate in controlling AMR, through the consolidation of public – private partnerships and technical assistance on the responsible and prudent use of antimicrobials. 
  4. Strengthen research and innovation on AMR and alternatives to antibiotics.
