Setting priorities for patient-centred surveillance of drug-resistant infections

  03 June 2020

A priority-setting process (PSP) was launched to define priorities for patient-centred antimicrobial resistance (AMR) surveillance and research in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). A list of uncertainties related to AMR surveillance in human health was generated using an online survey of stakeholders in LMICs which asked for unanswered questions about diagnosis, treatment or prevention of antibiotic resistance.

  • Most clinicians in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) lack local antimicrobial susceptibility data.
  • Clinicians in LMICs do not feel confident to treat drug-resistant infections.
  • Current guidance for infection prevention and control is not well adapted to low resource settings.
