ReAct Africa brings together experts and key stakeholders to form technical working groups on antimicrobial resistance. We provide technical assistance in the development and implementation of the National Action Plans. ReAct Africa takes on a holistic perspective and raises awareness by informing the general public and the health, veterinarian, agricultural and environmental sectors about antibiotic resistance.
How we work against AMR
In 2015, the World Health Assembly called on all Member States to develop and have in place by 2017, National Action Plans on antimicrobial resistance that are aligned with the objectives of the Global Action Plan. Although some considerable progress has been made, major gaps still exist in Africa and require urgent action.
How we support NAP development and Implemetation
Antibiotic resistance is a complex issue that requires behavior change from every person. We share interviews, stories and vast experiences from our network to influence behavior change and raise awareness on AMR in the African region.

Countries should not reinvent the wheel. Therefore, ReAct Africa holds an annual conference that brings together key people from multiple countries to share experiences and best practices, but also the obstacles and failures, to support each other in the development of National Action Plans.

ReAct Africa has been engaging students at various levels, from the elementary to the tertiary level. The objective of the interventions is to raise AMR awareness amongst students so that ultimately the students become “AMR champions” in their individual and professional capacity.
