Introduction

The Tripartite organizations – The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the World Health Organization (WHO), collectively referred to as ‘the Tripartite’ – are conducting a public discussion to collect views from different stakeholders on the substantial elements of the proposed Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Multi-Stakeholder Partnership Platform (‘the Platform’). Responses to this public discussion survey will enable the Tripartite to develop formal Terms of Reference for the Platform.

In April 2019, after global consultations, the Interagency Coordination Group (IACG) on AMR presented their report “No time to wait: securing the future from drug resistant infections” to the UN Secretary-General and recommended that the Tripartite establish a set of global governance mechanisms to tackle AMR: the Global Leaders Group on AMR (GLG), launched in November 2020, the Independent Panel on Evidence for Action against AMR (IPEA), currently under discussion, and this Platform.

We are very interested in hearing your opinions to shape the foundations of the Platform together, responding to the needs of stakeholders and combating AMR as a critical global threat across the human-animal-plant-environment interface. We hope this is the starting point for global, collective action. 

This survey will take 10-15 minutes. The information will be treated with strict confidentiality, and data will not be singled out. The results of this public discussion will be aggregated and published in Q4 2021 on FAO's AMR website. We may publish views; however, we will not attribute individual names to any of those views.

The survey consists of three parts:
  • Part I: Respondent information;
  • Part II: Proposed key elements of the Platform, with a focus on its technical aspects;
  • Part III: General interest and conclusion (optional).
Please answer 'yes' if you agree and 'no' if you do not agree or partially agree, using the comments box to explain the reason for your answer. The survey will remain open until 18 September 2021.

We look forward to receiving your input.

Feel free to get in touch at AMR-Platform@fao.org if you have any questions.

Thank you very much in advance for your time and support!
