AMR Multi Partner Trust Fund
The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the World Health Organization (WHO), known as the Tripartite, launched the AMR Multi-Partner Trust Fund (AMR MPTF) in 2019 to support countries counter the threat of AMR through a One Health approach.
The MPTF seeks to promote increased integration and coordination within the Tripartite and promote One Health action to tackle AMR. The United Nations Secretary-General has recognised the MPTF as the mechanism to secure consistent and coordinated development financing to support One Health National Action Plans and Tripartite Workplans.
The Fleming Fund already supports the FAO, WHO and OIE individually through bilateral grants, but the MPTF allows for a more coordinated and country-level approach to ensure alignment with UK objectives on AMR and existing investments.
The Fleming Fund sits on the steering committee of the MPTF which is responsible for the overall strategic guidance on the AMR MPTF.
