FIP Statement of Policy - Control of Antimicrobial Medicines Resistance (AMR)
(2008; 4 pages) [French] [Spanish]

Abstract

The FIP Statement of Policy on Control of Antimicrobial Medicines Resistance (AMR) was last revised in the year 2000. The problem of AMR has become more prevalent since then, and new concerns have been raised by scientific and health-care communities. Under these circumstances a number of prominent organizations, such as the WHO and the USA Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have issued new recommendations. Therefore, the 2000 FIP Statement of Policy on Control of AMR has been revised to reflect current realities and make appropriate recommendations.
