Urging health collaboration to combat antimicrobial resistance between China and B&R countries
In 2013, China proposed the construction of the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road (the Belt and Road, B&R). As of July 2022, 149 countries and 32 international organizations participated in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). BRI attached considerable priority to health, and the Boao Forum for Asia in 2021 focused on new forms of health cooperation for “Healthy Silk Road” initiative. However, AMR-related aspects have not been involved in B&R health cooperation projects. As the proponent of B&R, China need to enhance AMR-related health collaboration. This report is to recommend detailed strategies or plans for further enhancing the AMR governance capabilities in B&R, based on a comprehensive assessment of the current AMR status according to the Global One Health Index for AMR (GOHI-AMR).
