Following the publication of our [Phase I Report](https://www.flemingfund.org/publications/the-fleming-fund-phase-i-a-summary/) on Tuesday 26th April, the Fleming Fund hosted a launch event the following Wednesday. The aim of the launch event was to announce HMG approval for the Fleming Fund until 2025, showcase our new publication and share our partners’ work.
Fleming Fund South Centre grant extended for a further six months
Continued funding to South Centre supporting awareness and advocacy around antimicrobial resistance, in the run up to the United Nations General Assembly.
The Fleming Fund is pleased to announce that its grant with the South Centre has been extended by a further six months until the end of December 2019.
This extension of funding will help support South Centre’s awareness and advocacy activities surrounding antimicrobial resistance (AMR). These activities include:
- meetings and briefing sessions with low and middle income countries
- the dissemination of the IACG recommendations
- analysis and support to the G77 countries in the IACG follow up process
South Centre have led the organisation of two regional AMR workshops; one in Malaysia in June focusing on Asia, and one in Nairobi in July, focusing on Africa. During these workshops, participants discussed recent global developments and initiatives on AMR, the current AMR trends and policy responses at country level. The workshops provided a platform for participants to share implementation challenges, measures to increase public awareness of AMR and the role of civil society and educational bodies.
The Head of the Fleming Fund, Lucy Andrews presented at the Nairobi workshop via a recording which provided an update on Fleming Fund activities to the audience as well as an overview of the UK’s international AMR priorities.
