Implementing the global action plan on antimicrobial resistance

This report highlights many areas in all sectors where urgent action is
needed: greater high-level political engagement in countries to address AMR, a robust governance structure to ensure accountability for NAP implementation and monitoring, the allocation of adequate financial resources, the strengthening of technical capacity, increased awareness and education about AMR among targeted stakeholders and youth, the enforcement of existing regulations and legislation on the prescription, use and disposal of antimicrobials, and to prevent contamination of food and the environment with antimicrobials and antimicrobial residues.
