The COMBAT-AMR project is made possible through a grant from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Indo-Pacific Centre for Health Security. COMBAT-AMR is a two-and-a-half-year project focussed on combating the threat of antimicrobial resistance in Pacific Island Countries. A consortium of organisations led by the Doherty Institute and University of Melbourne, are partnering with Pacific Island countries to address the rising threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
AVI is a delivery partner for this project.
- The Doherty Institute utilises AVI’s expertise to:
- Recruit and contract locally-engaged staff in Fiji and Samoa.
- Provide salary benchmarking advice.
- Pay salary, taxation and remittance of other employment related costs.
- Provide personnel management, including in-country pastoral care and support, risk and security management and performance management.
- Remit funds internationally to cover project expenses as required.
