International collaboration to build global AMR surveillance
On 2-3 December 2014, the Swedish Ministry of Health and Social Affairs and the Public Health Agency of Sweden hosted a High Level Technical Meeting, co-sponsored by WHO.
The purpose of the meeting was to raise awareness and commitment to the development and early implementation of a global program for surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) in human health. The meeting focused on strategies to improve and implement local and global surveillance of antimicrobial resistance, with a particular emphasis on resistance to antibiotics.
Further information on the Early Implementation Phase of a global program for surveillance of AMR in human health is available on WHO’s webpage.
