The South Centre and ReAct (Action on Antibiotic Resistance) Africa will hold a virtual conference on ‘‘What is the status of Antimicrobial Resistance National Action Plans in the African Region?’, to be held from 1st to 4th of December 2020.
This is the third yearly conference on AMR organized by React Africa and the South Centre.
The conference is an opportunity for governments, regional bodies, academics and activists to jointly discuss and learn about the current state of AMR National Action Plan (NAP) implementation in Africa. Participants will share results of current progress, examine the challenges, promote best practices and collaboration among countries, agencies and funders to accelerate action against AMR in the African region. The tripartite organizations (WHO, FAO, OIE) will also be invited to showcase their current work and plans to support the African region in continuing with the implementation of AMR NAPs. Participants will also interact with funders in the AMR space on priorities and opportunities. The conference follows a One Health approach, convening high-level policymakers from human health, animal health and environment AMR experts, civil society representatives from many African countries and intergovernmental agencies.
