Aims

The primary aim of the fifth joint call of JPIAMR is to compare prevention, control, and intervention strategies to prevent the development, transmission of AMR infections.

In order to protect and prolong the usefulness of existing antimicrobials, increasing cross-sectoral efforts are needed to minimize their use and misuse in human and animal health and food production settings. Key measures to achieve this are to improve existing and implement new evidence-based control, prevention, and intervention strategies to reduce the risk of acquisition, development and transmission of, antibiotic-resistant pathogens and infection caused by these pathogens, in hospitalized patients, outpatients, healthy people, animals, and the environment.

Call topic(s) include*:

  • One Health oriented pilot studies to determine feasibility and protocols for future large scale multi-centre and multi-national studies of different prevention or intervention strategies designed to prevent AMR infections in community, health care, agricultural and environmental settings.
  • Compared effectiveness and economic evaluation of the implementation of new and/or more cost-effective methods for rapid detection and diagnosis of infections by multi-drug resistant microorganisms (MDR) for the purpose of identification of appropriate therapy, transmission routes or early detection of outbreaks in different settings.
  • Investigations of efficacy and effectiveness of behavioural intervention strategies or public awareness strategies aiming at reducing the use and misuse of antibiotics and the development and transfer of AMR.
  • Assessment of new methods to improve and raise hygiene and sanitation standards to reduce infections in health and care settings.

*Provisional information. Call topics are subject to change until Call opens.
