As per the WHO, AMR is the “resistance of a microorganism to an antimicrobial drug that was originally effective for the treatment of infections caused by it”. 

To take the AMR head on, the Delhi Government on January 3, 2020 launched the State Action Plan to Combat Antimicrobial Resistance (SAPCAR), focusing on a ‘One Health’ approach through six key strategic priority areas and multi-sectoral involvement.

The State plans follows National Action Plan (NAP) on antibiotic resistance framed by the Union health Ministry in 2017, on the lines of the WHO’s global action plan.
