The RADAAR project focuses on: regional data-sharing and analysis to influence and facilitate evidence-based policymaking, advocacy, and response; and providing Fleming Fund priority countries with support for planning, policy and interventions. The project developed capacities and guidance around advocacy on AMR data-generation and its use in policy and planning, and brought together AMR partners through webinars, workshops, and events.

Training/Capacity building

The RADAAR Project provides training and capacity building to enhance AMR-related policy initiatives for low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in Africa and Asia. In 2022, in collaboration with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Evidence-Informed Policy Network (EVIPNet), RADAAR is providing opportunities for LMICs to strengthen capacities in translating AMR data and evidence into effective policies. A series of online training webinars initially involved Bangladesh, Malawi, Nepal, and Uganda.

Catalyzing the Potential of Regional Action to Combat AMR

The RADAAR initiative aimed to support the development of regional frameworks for the sharing of One Health AMR/AMU/AMC data to the regional level, towards guiding regional and national policy and planning to combat AMR. Well-coordinated surveillance strategies and information-sharing platforms are critical in generating evidence that can be used to reduce the impact of AMR at the local, national, regional and global level.

Key Informant Interviews

During 2020-21, RADAAR conducted 60 key informant interviews (KIIs) with stakeholders from Bangladesh, Nepal, Malawi, Timor-Leste, Uganda, and Viet Nam (online due to COVID-19 restrictions). A further 30 interviews were conducted at the regional/global level, with experts or those coordinating major initiatives, projects, and networks. The aim was to: inform the content/design for three regional data workshops in south/southeast Asia and Africa, and policy workshops for Asia and Africa; and to identify existing regional platforms for data-sharing and analysis between countries.

RADAAR Online Survey

In April 2021, RADAAR conducted an online survey with key stakeholders and country experts involved in shaping AMR prevention and control efforts, to inform the design and content of a series of regional data and policy workshops in Asia and Africa. A total of 205 respondents from 22 Fleming Fund priority countries completed the survey. RADAAR also organized three webinars for south/southeast Asia and Africa to facilitate the completion of the survey.
