Around 700,000 people around the world are estimated to die each year from drug-resistant infections, 33,000 annually in the EU, with a growing number. Italy is one of the most involved countries. The Institute's project is called CONNECT and has among its objectives the development of new communication models to increase awareness and data sharing with a view to a global approach to antimicrobial resistance.
15 NOV – Inmi Spallanzani is one of the eight tender winners associated with the European project of a joint program on antimicrobial durability (Jpiamr, a joint programming initiative for antimicrobial resistance). An important recognition of the weight of the research carried out in this area by the ICRS specializing in infectious diseases. The aim of the project is to create multi-national networks that develop innovative ideas for creating a "virtual" research institute – that is, only on skills, regardless of the "physical" structure of antibiotic resistance.
Antibiotic resistance is one of the greatest threats of our century to the health and well-being of the population and against this danger. The world and the European health authorities have long been engaged in coordinated actions that develop appropriate responses. The joint programming initiative on microbial resistance was created in 2011 by 15 European countries, including Italy, through the Ministry of Health, with the support of the European Commission and now includes 26 countries around the world.
Jpiamr funds basic and exploratory research on new antibiotics, management of existing antibiotics and studies on the control of antibiotic resistance spread among humans, animals and the environment in one environment. Jpiamr coordinates the AMR research programs of Member States through the Strategic Agenda of its research and with the contribution of the Innovative Medical Initiative (IMI) and a network of NGOs, agencies and industries.
The award winning INMI program has the name Connect (inCreasing cOMunicatioN, NESS awareness and data sharing in a global database against resisTance) and has the objective of developing models to increase communication, awareness and sharing of the global approach to antibiotic resistance.
15 research institutes from different countries participate in the project (13 European countries, Turkey and Tanzania). With this result, which comes during a "week of microbial resistance" in which WHO, FAO and OIE call for an increasingly global approach to the problem, the National Institute of Infectious Diseases Lazzaro Spallanzani unites its leadership even in the field of vital importance as that of antibiotic resistance.
