Project AMR Network
Coordinating a national response to antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is inherently complicated — it is beyond the reach of any existing science-based entity, government portfolio, or social organization. The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) has funded this approximately one-year project to address the coordination gap at a pan-Canadian, One Health level. We are identifying interested parties across all sectors, levels of government, and other organizations that have a mandate, focus, or interest in areas related to AMR (including antimicrobial use and antimicrobial stewardship) and want to design options for a sustainable, effective governance mechanism that will advance Canada’s AMR response. We are committed to being evidence-informed and action-oriented. Our project will both help support the implementation of the Pan-Canadian AMR Action Plan (PCAP) and coordinate efforts that are beyond the scope of the current plan.
