Antimicrobial Resistance Multi Partner Trust Fund

The Antimicrobial Resistance AMR Multi-Partner Trust Fund (AMR MPTF) was launched in June 2019 by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH, founded as OIE) known as the Tripartite. In mid-2021, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) officially became a co-signatory of the AMR MPTF, and the partnership was formally changed to the Quadripartite. Initially set up for a five-year period (2019-2024), the Fund has been extended to 2030 to align with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) agenda and timeline. It provides crucial technical assistance and funding to participating countries for relevant programs aimed at combatting AMR. The United Nations Secretary-General has recognized the AMR MPTF as the mechanism to secure consistent and coordinated financing to combat AMR through a One Health approach.
Ahead of theĀ 3rd High-level Ministerial Conference on Antimicrobial Resistance, or AMR, the Quadripartite has highlighted some success stories of countries engaged with the AMR MPTF.
