The Tripartite collaboration between World Health Organization (WHO), Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), and World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) is joining efforts to develop a One Health priority research agenda on antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The strategic objective is to catalyse scientific interest and donor investment to inform global and national policies to address AMR in a One Health approach.
This is an invitation for stakeholders and professionals working on AMR across all sectors to contribute to this Agenda. Your responses will shape research questions that will be prioritized to inform scientific interest and investment.
The survey requests your input on research questions, which may be a concrete problem, methodological/theoretical in nature or operational/interventional aiming to inform policy development across sectors. The questions identified in the survey will be prioritized by the Delphi methodology using the WHO Guidance for undertaking a research priority setting exercise.
This open call survey requests knowledge gaps relating to:
- improving our understanding of transmission and impact of AMR across sectors
- strengthen the evidence base for effective AMR interventions
- policy, economics, and finance across sectors
- multisector integrated surveillance to inform policy
- behavioural insights and change
- crosscutting issues on:
- vulnerable groups
- environmental sustainability of interventions including climate change
- sustainability of AMR measures (social and economic feasibility)
The survey should take about 15 minutes or less.
The survey is anonymous, and the data will only be used for the purposes stated. We invite you to participate and contribute to this important strategic initiative.
The survey is open until Sunday 22 August 2021 22:00 Geneva time.
