(2012; 38 pages)


The WHO Advisory Group on Integrated Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance (AGISAR) was formed in 2009, following a worldwide solicitation of experts from a variety of relevant fields, including human health and veterinary medicine, to serve as members. One agenda item of the 1st AGISAR meeting held in Copenhagen, 2009 was a follow-up of the two previous expert consultations on critically important antimicrobials. Experts at the 2009 meeting reviewed the Copenhagen 2007 list of CIA (the 1st revision of the CIA list) and produced the 2nd revision of the WHO list of critically important antimicrobials for human medicine, taking into account new scientific information and new drugs.
