    Strategic Framework for collaboration on antimicrobial resistance
    Together for One Health
    2022
    Also available in:

    Pandemic prevention and preparedness are at the top of everyone’s mind as the world continues to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic. During this time, however, the threats posed by the silent pandemic of antimicrobial resistance to human, animal, and plant health, food production, and the environment have not ceased and are steadily growing. More than ever before, we know that addressing the interlinked and multi-faceted challenges posed by antimicrobial resistance requires that we work together – across sectors, government, academic disciplines, civil society, the private sector, and the multilateral system – to advance a One Health approach. This strategic framework on antimicrobial resistance represents an important milestone in the decades-long history of collaboration between the Tripartite organizations - a collaboration that now is even stronger as a result of our close engagement with the United Nations Environment Programme. The framework sets out for the first time what our organizations – as leaders in the multilateral system on the human, animal, plant, and environmental health – will do jointly to support countries’ efforts to scale up national responses to antimicrobial resistance. Countries and partners are strongly encouraged to replicate and amplify the One Health approach used in the framework, based on their own contexts and needs.

    The Global Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance (GAP) is the world’s blueprint for tackling the emergence and spread of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), which threatens many of the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on health, food security, environmental wellbeing and socio-economic development. Adopted by the membership of WHO, FAO and OIE in 2015, the GAP was further endorsed in 2016 during the 71st session of the UN General Assembly. The framework for monitoring and evaluation of the GAP aims to provide a manageable system to assess the success of the GAP and inform operational and strategic decision making on AMR for the next five to ten years. This framework will enhance the availability and quality of data, consolidate data collection and reporting requirements – especially for human health – and increase accountability. Rooted in experience and expertise across diverse sectors, this initiative will also underpin the forthcoming global development and stewardship framework for AMR.

    The AMR Multi-Stakeholder Partnership Platform was established in November 2022 by the Quadripartite organizations - 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) - as one of the global governance structures on AMR recommended by the United Nations Inter-Agency Coordination Group on AMR. It brings together relevant stakeholders across the human, animal, plant and environment sectors to assist in preserving antimicrobials and ensuring their responsible use through a One Health approach. It promotes a shared global vision, helps build consensus and takes action to contribute to the implementation of the Global Action Plan on AMR. Since its inaugural meeting in November 2023, the platform has grown to more than 200 members (organizations, networks and federations).The detailed considerations contained in this document are based on the discussions facilitated by the Action Group on the UN High-Level Meeting of the AMR Multi-Stakeholder Partnership Platform and represent the diverse opinions of stakeholders from all clusters of the platform, including civil society organizations, research institutions and academia, the private sector, financial institutions, resource partners, philanthropic organizations, governments, intergovernmental organizations and United Nations agencies.
