  17 July 2019

Inter-sectoral collaboration, commitment and action have been touted as crucial to strengthening regional diagnostic capacity to tackle Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) detection and surveillance in the Caribbean.

This is the objective of a Cooperation among Countries for Health Development (CCHD) project between the Government of Argentina, the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO).

At the formal launch of the project at the Best-Dos Santos Laboratory in Barbados, on Friday, July 12, Advisor, Disease Surveillance and Epidemiology, PAHO/WHO Office for the Caribbean Sub-Region, Dr. Eldonna Boisson, revealed that AMR is a threat which has the potential to be more deadly than cancer.
