Ireland's National Action Plan for Antimicrobial Resistance 2017-2020 (iNAP)

Ireland’s National Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance 2017-2020 (iNAP), was co-launched by the Minister for Health and the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine on 25th October 2017. iNAP is based on the five Strategic Objectives in the ‘WHO Global Action Plan on AMR’. iNAP is Ireland’s One Health Strategy which recognises that humans and animals share the same environment and that joint action is needed to deal with the AMR threat to public health, animal health and the environment. iNAP outlines over ninety actions to tackle the threat of AMR for completion in the three year period of 2018-2020. Completion of these actions and achieving the 5 strategic objectives outlined in iNAP involves taking co-ordinated multi-stakeholder involvement.
