AMR Action Plan

Malawi developed and implemented a Health Sector Strategic Plan I (HSSPI) from 2011 to 2016, which was followed by the Health Sector Strategic Plan II (HSSPII), which runs from 2017 to 2022. The plans are aimed at improving programme continuity within the health sector, and the overall contribution of the health sector to national development. AMR was included in HSSPII as a critical area of intervention: this document therefore provides a framework for the development of the national AMR strategy.

The Malawi AMR National Action Plan (NAP), published as the National AMR Strategy, runs from 2017 to 2022 and provides the operational detail to the HSSPII strategy outline, and is also a response to the global WHO efforts to reduce the impact of AMR.
