Excerpt
INTRODUCTION Antimicrobial resistance is a serious and growing problem worldwide. WHO recognizes the significant impact that resistance is having on public health and is committed to action, as exemplified by the Resolution of the World Health Assembly1. The Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring programme in the WHO Division of Emerging and other Communicable Diseases Surveillance and Control (EMC), working in partnership with others both within and outside WHO, has as its long-term goals: · to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with infections caused by antimicrobial resistant pathogens; · to reduce the rate of emergence and spread of antimicrobial resistance. With our partners, we aim to develop a global strategy for the containment of antimicrobial resistance. Successful implementation of such a strategy will require knowledge of the magnitude and trends of resistance; understanding of the causes of resistance; development and implementation of interventions to address the resistance problem.
