It is estimated that around 700,000 people worldwide die every year from drug-resistant infections, 33,000 per year in the EU, with numbers increasing. Italy is one of the countries most involved. The project of the Institute 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 winners of the competition for the European project of a joint program on antimicrobial resistance (Jpiamr, Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance). An important recognition of the weight of research carried out on the subject by ICRS specialized in infectious diseases. The aim of the project is to create transnational networks that develop innovative ideas for the creation of a "virtual" research institute – that is, based only on competencies, regardless of a "physical" structure – in antibiotic resistance (Amr).
Resistance to antibiotics 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 European health authorities have long engaged in coordinated actions that develop appropriate responses. The joint programming initiative on antimicrobial resistance was established 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 the spread of antibiotic resistance between humans, animals and the environment from a single perspective. Jpiamr coordinates the AMR research programs of member countries through its strategic research agenda and with the contribution of the Innovative Medicine Initiative (IMI) program and a network of nongovernmental agencies, agencies and industries.
The award-winning INMI program has the name Connect (inCreasing cOmmunication, awareNEss and data sharing in a global approach to resISTance) and aims to develop models to increase communication, awareness and data sharing. approach to antibiotic resistance.
15 research institutes from different countries participate in the project (13 European countries, in addition to Turkey and Tanzania). With this result, which comes during the "Antimicrobial Resistance Week" in which WHO, FAO and OIE call for an increasingly global approach to the problem, the National Institute of Infectious Diseases Lazzaro Spallanzani consolidates its leadership even in a sector of vital importance. importance, such as resistance to antibiotics.
