One Health initiative to prevent resistance emergence

Alternative title: Initiativ for å forhindre fremkomst av resistens i et Én helse-perspektiv (AMRprevent / ResAzoleNet)

Awarded: NOK 1.5 mill.

Can we apply the mindset behind the preparation of WHO's list of antibiotic-resistant "priority pathogens"1 and principles from antibacterial resistance stewardship to reduce the development and spread of antifungal resistance? In short, AMRprevent will implement Centers for disease Control and Prevention´s (CDC) concept of One Health by bringing together researchers and stakeholders from different sectors and disciplines nationally and internationally in order to achieve the best health outcomes. The aim of the network project is to exchange experiences and knowledge and propose strategies for the management and prevention of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). In the project we will, among other things, arrange meetings and an international working meeting, write a review article and seek research funding nationally and internationally.

AMRprevent is tailored to illuminate and collect knowledge about antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and identify knowledge gaps and research needs. The consortium is a based on an existing national, international and multidisciplinary collaboration joining renowned scientists from human and veterinary medicine, agriculture, mycologists, experts in fungal genetics and epidemiologists (Interdisciplinary think tank to minimize the emergence and spread of antifungal resistance – ResAzoleNet), but have been reinforced with bacteriologist with expertise on AMR. AMRprevent brings together research groups from different disciplines, sectors and institutions to illuminate the problem complexity and exchange knowledge and methods (WP1). The network will compile an assembly and comparison of existing knowledge on development of bacterial and fungal AMR in a One Health perspective (WP2), to propose new research projects (WP3). Routes of influence to relevant national and international authorities and stakeholders will be mapped, for distribution of the project results and recommendations of measures (WP4). Finally, an international workshop will be arranged to discuss and compare AMR, challenges and alternative measures across sectors and disciplines in a One Health perspective (WP1). In short, AMRprevent will implement Centers for disease Control and Prevention´s (CDC) concept of One Health by bringing together relevant partners, coordinate, collaborate and communicate in order to achieve the best health outcomes.
