Country Grants

The Fleming Fund Country Grants programme will assist countries to collect high quality data relevant to antimicrobial resistance (AMR). This data will cover AMR and drug resistant infections, and the use of antimicrobial medicines in human and animal health, agriculture and aquaculture.

The increase in data, shared nationally and globally, will form the basis of changes in policy and practice for the use of antimicrobial medicines.

Grants will be awarded competitively following a published request for proposals. The request for proposals will be developed hand-in-hand with national AMR Coordination Committees after a detailed needs assessment.

The Fleming Fund management grant for Country Grants will engage with countries through a phased approach. Request for proposals will be published as they are ready.
