Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance

To date, little biomedical research on resistance has been translated into interventions to improve health care and most interventions to control AMR to date have been based on experience, empiricism and common sense; rather than strong evidence. There is a lack of evidence base in both human and veterinary science. To solve this, controlled integrated studies in society, health care and agricultural settings are urgently needed.

Under the umbrella of the Strategic Research Agenda, JPIAMR, with its collaborative activities (calls, workshops, international collaboration etc) aims to:

  • Initiate large-scale, international projects in which interventions to prevent and control the spread of AMR can be tested in different settings
  • Compare and combine AMR prevention and control practices in cost efficacy trials
  • Perform research to optimise implementation strategies of interventions aimed at reducing AMR
