Hospital-based surveillance for sexually transmitted diseases to start in India: ICMR

  29 April 2022

The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) will start a hospital-based surveillance network for sexually transmitted infection (STI) data collection to study antimicrobial resistance patterns (AMR) in India.

The study’s objective is to examine the frequency, clinical laboratory features, antimicrobial resistance patterns (AMR) and treatment outcomes related to STIs in the population along with the establishment of a national hospital-based surveillance network.

The data, according to ICMR, will serve as an ‘invaluable tool in predicting the burden of the disease existing in our society’.
