The publication International instruments on the use of antimicrobials across the human, animal and plant sectorswas developed by the Tripartite organizations: the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the World Health Organization (WHO). It was created in response to the 2019 Interagency Coordination Group on AMR report to the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the World Health Assembly resolution WHA72.5 that called on WHO together with the Tripartite organizations to adjust the process and scope of the global development and stewardship framework to combat AMR.

The publication provides an overview and analysis of international instruments that set standards related to the use of antimicrobials across the human, animal and plant sectors, and their release into the environment. The purpose of the document is to identify existing instruments and standards in order to guide both their implementation and to inform discussions and direction for future international instruments related to antimicrobial use.
