The Fleming Fund is a U.K. Department of Health and Social Care program funded with U.K. aid to help low- and middle-income countries fight antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The Fleming Fund is named after Alexander Fleming, who discovered the world's first antibiotic and thereby paved the way for the use of antibiotics in modern healthcare. When receiving the Nobel Prize in 1945, Fleming effectively predicted the threat of AMR, warning of a time when antibiotics would become less useful due to frequent or improper use.

“Antimicrobial resistance has the potential to kill millions each year and become a massive burden on health systems across the world,” notes Britain’s Chief Medical Officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies. “By 2050, if left unchecked, drug-resistant infections will kill 10 million people a year and cost the worldwide economy $100 trillion.”

The Fleming Fund Grants is excited to continue its collaboration with DAI and the Indonesian Government to strengthen systems for One Health governance and AMR and Antimicrobial Use (AMR/AMU) across the human and animal health sectors.
