Accelerating AMR action through antimicrobial stewardship in the African region
In 2020, Reckitt and the Global Respiratory Infection Partnership (GRIP) partnered with FIP to host a series of events combining efforts with the ambition of “Driving AMR action in a new decade”. One global event and six regional workshops were held, with over 4,000 participants engaging in collaborative efforts to identify and implement region-specific initiatives to mitigate AMR. The success of this partnership culminated in the FIP Regional AMR Roadmaps which identified regional initiatives to drive behaviour change and aid in the global fight against AMR.
This year GRIP, FIP and Reckitt continue to share this global commitment as we partner to bring you a series of events aimed at further driving a collaborative approach to AMR mitigation for pharmacy. Co-chaired by regional representatives from FIP and GRIP, we will aim to showcase the progress in the AMR Roadmap made in the African Region over the past 12 months.
