The Prevalence of Antimicrobial Resistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae in Papua New Guinea: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

  29 January 2022

Neisseria gonorrhoeae antimicrobial resistance (NG AMR) has become an urgent concern globally. The World Health Organization, the United States of America Centers for Disease Control, and other regulators have called to improve resistance-testing methods to enhance NG AMR surveillance. NG AMR surveillance remains critical in informing treatment; unfortunately, this is often lacking in settings with limited resources, such as Papua New Guinea (PNG). We conducted a systematic review and a prevalence meta-analysis, and provided an overview of NG AMR in PNG. We showed the lack of NG AMR data in the last decade, and emphasized the need for NG AMR surveillance in PNG. Since NG AMR testing by the NG culture method is unreliable in PNG, we suggested using molecular tests to complement and enhance NG AMR surveillance.
