STRENGTHENING IMPLEMENTATION OF ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE NATIONAL ACTION PLANS
Antimicrobial resistance is one of the major challenges of our time. Countries use national action plans as a mechanism to build engagement among stakeholders and coordinate a range of actions across human, animal, and environmental health. However, implementation of recommended policies such as stewardship of antimicrobials, infection prevention and control, and stimulating research and development of novel antimicrobials and alternatives remains inconsistent. Improving the quality of governance within antimicrobial resistance national action plans is an essential step to improving implementation. Countries must engage with a cyclical process of continuous design, implementation, monitoring and
evaluation to achieve these aims.
