Call text: 13th JPIAMR transnational co-funded call for research projects within the ERA-NET JPIAMR-ACTION: “One Health interventions to prevent or reduce the development and transmission of antimicrobial resistance (AMR)”
Short title: “HARISSA”: One HeAlth InteRventIon and TransmiSSion in AMR
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) does not recognise geographic borders or species barriers. Progress on AMR is necessary to achieve the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with AMR being deeply rooted into attainment of SDGs promoting no poverty, good health and wellbeing, zero hunger, reduced inequality and decent work and international growth. With the current focus of the JPIAMR Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda, this call will specifically focus on tackling the rising threat of antibiotic resistance.
Addressing the rising threat of antibiotic resistance requires a One Health approach since resistant bacteria, genetic elements and antibiotics are found in humans, animals and the environment. Declining clinical effectiveness of existing antibiotics together with the low and insufficient number of promising new antibiotics in the pipeline stresses the urgency to understand the mechanisms of emergence and transmission of antibiotic resistance. The European One Health Action Plan against AMR1 encourages the EU and its Member States to deliver innovative, effective and sustainable responses to AMR, especially to reduce the
emergence and spread of AMR inside and outside the EU. This call, funded under the ERA-NET JPIAMR-ACTION, is the 13th JPIAMR transnational call for research projects. The call advocates for a One Health approach to 1) understand the impact of interventions on the development and transmission of antibiotic resistance and to 2) design, implement, evaluate, and compare interventions that will have a true impact on preventing or reducing the development and
transmission of antibiotic resistance in and between the different One Health settings(human, animal, environment).
