Nepal: Country Grant
The cornerstone of the Fund is the Country Grants programme. Through a competitive tender process, organisations or a consortium are selected for funding awards to support the country’s National Action Plan, by reinforcing existing surveillance systems, strengthening laboratory infrastructure, developing human capacity or technical skills and using protocols for appropriate antimicrobial use.
Activities are expected to support existing government health systems and work in tandem with relevant government ministries. Grant management is coordinated through the Management Agent, Mott MacDonald.
August 2018 - April 2021
The objectives are developed and agreed in partnership with the Government of Nepal.
- enable Nepal to establish a surveillance technical working group to support the Steering Committee for Prevention and Control of AMR
- strengthen the surveillance of AMR and monitoring of antimicrobial medicine use, in humans, animals and agriculture
- support these aims by providing training, documentation, methods and protocols, as well equipping or refurbishing laboratories across 12 sites
