Sharing Research on AMR Network (SHARENET)

The SHARENET Network is being built on the highly perceived need to collect relevant evidence to advise stakeholders and policymakers on suitable control strategies for AMR reduction in low- and middle-income countries that are tailored to the local situation and founded on local problematics.

The threat of AMR is rising in low and middle income countries (LMIC). The French Alliance of Health Sciences Research Institution (AVIESAN) has recently established a small network for AMR research in partnership with LMIC scientists to strengthen local research expertise. The aim is to assist in the collection of relevant evidence to advise stakeholders and policymakers on suitable control strategies for AMR reduction that are tailored to the local situation and founded on local problematics. Countries initially involved are Cambodia, Madagascar, Ivory Coast and France.

In this proposal, we intend to expand the network to integrate experts from Laos, Mauritius, Burkina Faso and Senegal, together with scientists from Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands. The intention is to reinforce the geographical distribution of the network (South-East Asia, Indian Ocean and Africa, linked with Europe), strengthen its coherence, and enrich the collaboration.

The proposed multidisciplinary Network+ will develop two multicentre research projects intending to identify key determinants of AMR emergence and dissemination. It will be operated as a dynamic collaborative and synergistic process: after an initial workshop in which participants will prepare a detailed outline of the wo research projects, the protocols will be fully developed with clear indication of respective tasks and responsibilities, and piloted for feasibility. A second workshop will take place to gather progress and results, and final protocols submitted for funding. Partners will prepare for the implementation of the research protocols, with supporting best practice activities.

This Network will contribute to the collection of a large dataset that will enrich AMR knowledge, and assist in implementation of efficient strategies for AMR control in LMICs. Contents and expected deliverables of the projects will be described in Communication Notes to be placed on JPIAMR-VRI.
