Feasibility, Challenges, and Benefits of Global Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System Implementation: Results from a Multicenter Quasi-Experimental Study
The Global Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System (GLASS) is one of the pillars of the global action plan on antimicrobial resistance launched by the World Health Organization in 2015. This study was conducted to determine the feasibility and benefits of GLASS as a component of antimicrobial stewardship strategies in three provincial hospitals in Thailand. Data on the types of bacteria isolated and their antibiotic susceptibility during January–December 2019 and January–April 2020 were retrieved from the microbiology laboratory of each participating hospital. Laboratory-based antibiograms from 2019 and GLASS-based antibiograms from 2020 were created and compared. A total of 14,877 and 3580 bacterial isolates were obtained during January–December 2019 and January–April 2020, respectively.
