|Abstract:||Detection of resistance and monitoring for its spread requires laboratory-based surveillance. A workshop was organized to assist national authorities in building their laboratory capacity for efficient surveillance of emergence and spread of antimicrobial resistance through use of WHO-recommended laboratory techniques for determination of antimicrobial resistance and WHO software for antimicrobial resistance data analyses. This document also briefly outlines the status of laboratory-based surveillance of antimicrobial resistance in countries in Asia-Pacific region.|
