The Quadripartite, comprising the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO); World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH, founded as OIE); World Health Organization (WHO); and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), supports the implementation of national action plans against AMR in Cambodia, Ethiopia, Ghana, Indonesia, Kenya, Morocco, Peru, Senegal, Tajikistan and Zimbabwe.
The AMR MPTF Steering Committee met on 9 February 2022 for the seventh time. As the Fund’s decision-making body, the Committee agreed on the following:
- the inclusion of UNEP as a member of the AMR MPTF Steering Committee;
- approval of concept notes from the following countries: Bangladesh, Madagascar, Mongolia and Tunisia. These four countries will now develop project proposals to become future Fund beneficiaries;
- revision of the Fund’s terms of reference and reflections on resource mobilisation and mid-term evaluation.
The AMR MPTF is a vital mechanism in putting the Quadripartite’s decisions on AMR into action, and provides a unique opportunity for countries to access support through a One Health approach.
