Vision and Mission
We envision that ICARS will be a platform for generating, assessing and using evidence to support the development and implementation of cost-effective and context-specific solutions to antimicrobial resistance in low- and middle-income countries.
We envisage a world where resistance to antimicrobial drugs no longer poses a threat to the health of humans and animals, the environment, global food security and economic prosperity.
ICARS will be a leading international One Health knowledge, intervention and implementation research partnership, generating, assessing, and using evidence to support the development and implementation of cost-effective and context-specific solutions to mitigate antimicrobial resistance, particularly in low- and middle-income countries.
Overarching ICARS Goals
Taking a One Health approach and focusing particularly on low- and middle-income Countries ICARS will:
- Contribute towards mitigating the detrimental impact of antimicrobial resistance on health and the economy; and
- Establis a solution development partnership to achieve this.
A solution development partnership is a non-profit organisational structure that enables the public, academic, philanthropic, and private sectors to combine resources (financial and technical) for the development of solutions. It is a platform through which donors and governments can support projects and activities that aim to identify and implement cost-effective solutions to problems that disproportionally affect people in low- and middle-income countries.
