  11 December 2021

WHO has identified an initial seven countries to benefit from a comprehensive technical package to support the implementation of national action plans on AMR based on the specific country needs. These countries include Egypt, Ethiopia, Jordan, Indonesia, Nigeria, Pakistan and Sudan. WHO will focus on assisting the countries in building their capacity across the relevant technical areas including multisectoral governance, awareness, surveillance, laboratory strengthening, Infection Prevention and Control (IPC), stewardship, and monitoring and evaluation. WHO will also assist countries in incorporating their AMR national action plan into their respective United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Frameworks and in prioritizing multilateral collaboration at country level.
