AMR Multi-stakeholder Partnership Platform will be launched soon
17 November 2022
This 18 November, Antimicrobioal Resistance Multi-Stakeholder Partnership Platform will be launched. The Platform aims to create a global movement for change on AMR, raise awareness of the role everyone should play in tackling AMR, and highlight the importance of a collaborative One Health approach in addressing AMR issues.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global, growing threat to our public health, agrifood and ecosystems. Addressing it through a coordinated, multi-sectoral One Health approach is a shared responsibility as it affects everyone. Partnerships and cross-sectoral collaborations involving public and private actors at global, regional, and national levels are required if we are to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH), known as the Quadripartite will present the Platform’s objectives, guiding principles and membership criteria.
