The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), and World Health Organization (WHO) have expanded their partnership to counter antimicrobial resistance (AMR) through the addition of the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment).

The move is intended to attack AMR in a more holistic way. The new partnership, which will be known as the Tripartite Plus, was announced at the opening of the World Antibiotic Awareness Week (WAAW) observance in Asia and the Pacific.

FAO Assistant Director-General and Regional Representative for Asia and the Pacific, Kundhavi Kadiresan, welcomed the establishment of the Tripartite Plus emphasizing the important role that the environment plays in addressing AMR, pointing out that all antibiotics, whether from manufacturing processes, or passing through humans and animals, can end up in soil and water and the environment, giving microbes further opportunity to build up resistance.
