Conclusions • All interventions require some level of support, leadership and political commitment • Sustaining and building upon gains requires financial and human resources, as well as infrastructure capabilities • A range of interventions are needed Not all are necessary or relevant in all countries Local conditions differ widely between and within countries Country-focused situation analysis is a logical initial step towards setting up a comprehensive anti-AMR programme
Conclusions (2) • Prioritizing national strategies, measures and resources is essential • Partnerships and closer collaboration between policy makers, academia, managers and appropriate professionals and interest groups is advocated • More collaboration is needed between disciplines within sectors (ex: human and animal medicine) • In healthcare, collaboration between those involved in promoting rational use of medicines and those involved in infection prevention and control must be reinforced
