New partnership to combat antimicrobial resistance in gonorrhoea

  09 December 2021

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has awarded funding to nearly 30 organizations to combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and other healthcare threats through the establishment of 2 new networks: the Global Action in Healthcare Network (GAIHN) and the Global Antimicrobial Resistance Laboratory and Response Network (Global AR Lab & Response Network).

With funding from this initiative, WHO will enhance the national, regional and global understanding of epidemiology and AMR in Neisseria gonorrhoeae (N. gonorrhoeae). In partnership with WHO collaborating centres (1-3), the WHO Department of Global HIV, Hepatitis and STI Programmes will strengthen surveillance of AMR in N. gonorrhoeae by coordinating, consolidating and expanding the Enhanced Gonococcal Antimicrobial Surveillance Program (EGASP) at the global level within the Global AMR Surveillance System framework.
