A new Multi-Partner Trust Fund has been launched in the Netherlands to combat antimicrobial resistance globally. FAO, OIE and WHO are intensifying the One Health approach.

In a major boost to combat one of the gravest risks to global health a dedicated funding vehicle allowing partners to devote resources to accelerate global action against Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) was unveiled at a Ministerial Conference in the Netherlands in late June 2019.

The Tripartite is a joint effort by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the World Health Organization (WHO), and was launched the AMR Multi-Partner Trust Fund, which is being supported by an initial contribution of five million US dollars from the Government of the Netherlands.

The AMR Trust Fund has a five-year scope, through 2024, and shall aim to scale up efforts to support countries to counter the immediate impact of AMR, arguably the most complex threat to global health.

Antimicrobial resistance refers to the natural ability of bacteria and other microbes to develop resistance to the medicines we use to treat them, and the process is accelerated by inappropriate or excessive use of pharmaceutical products designed to kill unwanted pathogens in humans, animals and crops.
