A new report is calling for a drastic increase in AMR data across the continent.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and the Sustainable Development Goals: Consultation for a new AMR indicator
The UN’s Inter-Agency and Expert Group on Sustainable Development Goal Indicators (IAEG-SDGs) has now opened consultation on the proposed changes, which includes an AMR Indicator
The UN is conducting a Comprehensive Review of the global indicator framework. Their Inter-Agency and Expert Group on Sustainable Development Goal Indicators (IAEG-SDGs) has now opened consultation on the proposed changes, which includes an AMR Indicator proposed by the World Health Organisation.
Reduce the percentage of bloodstream infections due to selected antimicrobial resistant organisms.
Definition of indicator:
Frequency of bloodstream infection among hospital patients due to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Escherichia coli resistant to 3rd-generation cephalosporin (e.g., ESBL- E. coli).
This indicator would better anchor AMR within the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) indicators and strengthen the profile of AMR. To support the inclusion of an AMR Indicator in the SDGs, please go to the consultation at the link below and add your comments against proposed indicator 3.d.2 before 8th September.
