Antimicrobial resistance: Report of a regional meeting, Jaipur, India, 10-13 November 2014
AbstractAntimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is an increasingly serious threat to global public health. The problem is so serious that it threatens the achievements of modern medicine. A post-antibiotic era in which common infections and minor injuries can kill is a very real possibility for the 21st century. The WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia organized the SEA Regional Meeting on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) at Jaipur, India, from 10-13 Nov 2014. The meeting was organized to review the status of development and implementation of national action plans on AMR, to advocate with Member States for acceleration of national efforts to build capacities needed for implementation of the Jaipur Declaration on AMR and the SEA Regional Strategy on AMR, to discuss the gaps and challenges hampering national efforts and suggest the way forward.
