2.3 Common Protocols for Data Collection
Request For Proposal published
Proposals under review
Round Two grants support improvements in external quality assurance of laboratory testing, training, quality diagnostics, and policy and advocacy.
This grant focuses on standardising the collection and analysis of data by developing common protocols. For data to be comparable, it must be collected in the same way. This is particularly challenging within animal health, aquaculture, environmental and food safety surveillance, as there are no international guidelines pertaining to AMR data collection. The grantee has been tasked with identifying the most critical data protocols needed in either animal health, aquaculture or environmental sectors and then developing them. They will also support the roll-out of the Tricycle Protocol in Fleming Fund priority countries. Tricycle provides a consistent methodology to capture data across multiple sectors for resistant E. coli. Although the guidelines are not comprehensive, they include protocols for humans, poultry and the environment, thereby acting as a starting point for One Health data collection.
