Project Period

June 2021 - November 2029

The Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR) is a global collaborative platform engaging 29 nations to curb antimicrobial resistance (AMR), one of the most serious global health challenges. Under JPIAMR, APHRC is a fund manager on behalf of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) for thirteen projects in eighteen African partner institutions. The JPIAMR fund management project has the overall objective to support implementing partner institutions to increase timeliness, efficiency, and effectiveness in the implementation of their JPIAMR projects, and to strengthen their AMR research and grant management capacities.

Specifically, the project seeks to:

  • Strengthen research, governance, and management systems within implementing partner institutions supporting AMR research and response; and
  • Create a strong network of AMR researchers collaboratively and effectively engaging with policy actors in projects aimed at prevention and treatment of bacterial, parasitic, viral, and fungal infections and diseases.

Project Team:
