Poland is represented in JPIAMR by the Ministry of Education and Science.

The research in the area of AMR is principally funded by two agencies, National Science Centre (NCN) and National Centre for Research and Development (NCBR) by response-mode grants. Alert resistance in bacteria is constantly monitored for the whole country through an activity of the National Reference Centre for Antimicrobial Resistance and the National Reference Centre for Bacterial Meningitis, located at the National Medicines Institute in Warsaw.
