FAO - Antimicrobial Resistance Project Coordinator

Closure Date: 01/May/2018

In 2015 FAO adopted a resolution on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) followed by the FAO Action Plan on AMR in 2016. In this context FAO supports the development of global guidance and facilitates regional and national initiatives to develop and implement National Action Plans on AMR and integrate measures to address AMR into food and agriculture production and food safety systems. FAO works closely with its tripartite partners, the World Health Organization and the World Organisation for Animal Health to promote a One Health approach to addressing AMR at all levels. FAO is currently recruiting for positions to be based in in the FAO Offices in Bangkok, Thailand, Accra, Ghana and Harare, Zimbabwe.

The tasks of these three regionally-based positions will focus primarily on supporting the implementation of a project on “Engaging the food and agriculture sectors in sub-Saharan Africa and South and South-East Asia: the global efforts to combat antimicrobial resistance using a One Health Approach” and collaboration with WHO and OIE and other partners in the regions, where relevant, to enable AMR to be addressed in a One Health and sustainable manner.
