Project: Strengthening implementation of National Action Plans through a One Health AMR full economic costing exercise

Acronym SNAP ONE (Reference Number: JPIAMR_2021_P014)
Duration 01/05/2022 - 30/04/2025
Project Topic For most low-income countries 2 to 3 years have passed since the approval of their National Action Plans (NAPs) for implementing an agreed upon list of measures to stem the growth of antibiotic resistance. Yet progress on NAP implementation remains very limited. This is due in part to a low sense of urgency regarding AMR that reflects an incomplete perception of its epidemiological and financial burden. This project aims to utilize the costing framework recently developed by the GAP ONE Network as a tool to: 1. Estimate the full economic burden of AMR (epidemiological and financial) in two sub-Saharan countries in order to provide a clear picture of what is at stake if NAP implementation continues to stagnate. This should help enhance the will to take greater action to make it possible from a political standpoint and help mobilize internal resources. 2. Provide international donors with economic evidence to inform funding decisions. 3. Create an adaptable framework for economic analyses to evaluate and compare interventions at local level (to facilitate cost-effectiveness analyses) and inform national strategies for scale-up to combat AMR 4. Use the costing process itself to bring stakeholders together to foster both collaboration and leadership for implementing NAPs using the One Health approach.
