Through its Fleming Fund Country Grant in Viet Nam, FHI 360 helps to establish the Government of the United Kingdom as a key partner to the Government of Viet Nam in combating antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The project identifies and addresses critical gaps in surveillance of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in Viet Nam, focusing on strengthening AMR and antimicrobial use (AMU) surveillance systems in the human and animal health sectors.

This work establishes AMR as a national priority through support for the One Health Partnership for Zoonotic Disease (OPH), 2021–2025, by improving national-level cross-sectoral collaboration and information sharing. It has improved laboratory safety in 19 human health laboratories, strengthened the AMR data reporting system and completed renovations of three animal health laboratories.

Responding to the global threat of AMR, the project supports the One Health Initiative, which fights AMR in low- and middle-income countries.

With funding from the U.K. Government’s Department of Health and Social Care, FHI 360 works closely with government counterparts, in-country experts, stakeholders and international experts to achieve these objectives:

  • Strengthen One Health approaches to information sharing and establish frameworks for governance and policy
  • Strengthen AMR and AMU surveillance systems in the human health sector
  • Strengthen AMR and AMU surveillance systems in the animal health sector
