Launch of WHO Consultation on draft global action plan on antimicrobial resistance

At the Sixty-seventh World Health Assembly (WHA) in May 2014, a resolution was passed which called for the World Health Organization (WHO) to lead the development of a global action plan to address antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

The WHO Secretariat will lead the development of a draft global action plan that reflects the commitment, perspectives and roles of all relevant stakeholders, and in which everyone has clear and shared ownership and responsibilities. In this regard, WHO is now inviting contributions from all relevant organizations, institutions, networks, civil society groups, national authorities and ministries through an online consultation. The consultation will be open until 1st September 2014. To participate in the consultation please click here
