From evidence to action
At ICARS, our mission is to partner with low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in their efforts to reduce drug-resistant infections.
We do this by co-developing tailored solutions with LMIC governments and researchers, who then implement them on the ground using ICARS funding and expertise, building on AMR National Action Plans.
ICARS Strategy 2022 – 2026
Guided by our vision of a world without drug-resistant infections, we have developed a new strategy with a revised outcome framework and refined the scope and goals of each of our interconnected pillars.
We are pleased to present a succinct overview of ICARS unique value proposition, followed by our overarching strategy that will run until 2026, as well as a roadmap that details our planned activities per pillar.
Our projects inform policy and practice around the world
At ICARS, we simultaneously use top-down and bottom-up approaches, engaging with government ministries while involving scientists and practitioners throughout the process.
