In UN General Assembly Resolution A/RES/71/3, Member States requested “the Secretary-General to establish, in consultation with WHO, FAO and OIE, an ad hoc interagency coordination group, co-chaired by the Executive Office of the Secretary General and WHO, drawing, where necessary, on expertise from relevant stakeholders, to provide practical guidance for approaches needed to ensure sustained effective global action to address AMR”. In response to this request, the Secretary-General convened a group of experts to carry out this work on his behalf). These experts were drawn from relevant agencies and independent individuals selected for their expertise. This Ad Hoc Interagency Coordination Group on AMR (IACG) is co-chaired by the Deputy Secretary-General and the WHO Director-General. Three co-conveners guide and facilitate the work of the group--Prof Junshi Chen, Dame Sally Davies, and Ms Martha Gyansa-Lutterodt.
