January 22-27, the WHO will hold its 142nd meeting of the Executive Board in Geneva. The discussions are likely to be dominated by the draft General Work Program for 2019-2023. A new target on reducing sepsis cases by 10% is introduced as a benchmark for the field of antibiotic resistance.
Under the theme “Making the World Safe from the Threats of Emerging Infectious Diseases”, this year’s Prince Mahidol Award Conference (PMAC) 2018 will give the challenge of antibiotic resistance prominent attention. ReAct will have several people attending the conference to present and engage in the discussions.
ReAct, together with other members of the Antibiotic Resistance Coalition (ARC) has written a joint letter to the UN Inter-Agency Coordination Group (IACG) on Antimicrobial Resistance to call on the group to increase the transparency of, and civil society involvement in, its policy deliberation and meeting process.
Costing a country’s National Action Plan on AMR appears to be a daunting and challenging task. As Dr. Kim Faure has great experience on costing National Action Plans on AMR ReAct interviewed her to help countries with som practical steps in the process.
We would like to thank you for 2017 with wishes for an exciting 2018!
