Building & Leveraging Learning Investments in Antimicrobial Resistance Strategy


Programme Partner: PATH

Region: Vietnam

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is on the rise, responsible for 700,000 deaths worldwide and projected to lead to 10 million deaths over the next 30 years. Imprudent antibiotic use leads to increased risk of antibiotic resistance. This health burden is not limited to low-middle income countries, but it also functions like an infectious disease that can easily spread across borders with pandemic potential. Despite the looming threat of AMR, global efforts in garnering funding and attention to this health burden has been inconsistent.

Some countries lack direction in where to prioritise investments in AMR and One Health. Additionally, there is a lack of accountability and responsibility for multisectoral One Health issues due to the lack of a pre-existing a framework or training. With this in mind, the WHO has developed a training in AMR Governance, which could be rolled-out at the country level in a way that is fit-for-practice and fit-for-purpose.

This is a multisectoral training on AMR governance and leadership, which is envisioned as a 3-day workshop where tools are provided to participants to help them engage with other partners.

The PATH Epidemic Preparedness and Response Programme aims to address the emerging threat of antimicrobial resistance through strengthening country capacity, improving diagnostic and surveillance tools and promoting sharing of learnings among countries. While this training could be rolled-out to any number of countries who are in the “ready” stage in partnership with the WHO, we would focus on Vietnam as a starting point based on PATH’s current geographic presence and strengths.
