The IDRC Animal Health team is hosting two public information sessions to answer questions and provide further information on the call for proposals for Innovative Veterinary Solutions for Antimicrobial Resistance.

The sessions will be held online July 31 (in English) and August 2 (in French) from 9:00-10:00 am EDT. During the session, we will provide an overview of the Animal Health program and the InnoVet-AMR initiative, as well as key information related to the call, followed by an open Q&A period.

The call is part of the InnoVet-AMR initiative, a four-year, CA$27.9 million partnership between IDRC and the UK’s Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) that is aimed at reducing the emerging risk that AMR in animals poses to global health and food security. Through InnoVet-AMR, IDRC and DHSC seek to:

  • support research that will identify innovative veterinary solutions, including vaccines, to reduce the inappropriate use of antibiotics in livestock and aquaculture operations in low and middle-income countries (LMICs); and
  • build effective partnerships to improve the coordination, discovery, development, and sustainable delivery of innovative veterinary solutions to reduce the use of antimicrobials in livestock and aquaculture operations in LMICs.

All those interested in applying to the call are invited to join the session. We encourage you to read the Call for Proposals and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) prior to attending. Proposals are due by September 12, 2018 at 11 am EDT
