Global priority list of antibiotic-resistant bacteria to guide research, discovery, and development of new antibiotics

World Health Organization (WHO), (2017)

The World Health Organization was requested by Member States to develop a global priority pathogens list (global PPL) of antibiotic-resistant bacteria to help in prioritizing the research and development (R&D) of new and effective antibiotic treatments. To date, the selection of pathogens for R&D activities has been largely guided by small and large pharmaceutical companies according to a variety of parameters, such as perceived/unmet medical need, pressure of investors, market size, scientific discovery potential, and availability of specific technologies. Previous PPLs, issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Antibiotika-Resistenzen vermeiden - eine global Herausforderung. E-Learning Kurs

BUKO Pharma-Kampagne, (2016)

Mit diesem E-Learning Kurs bietet die Pharma-Kampagne Bildungsmaterial zum Thema Antibiotika-Resistenzen. Das Thema ist nicht nur in der Humanmedizin relevant, sondern auch im Bereich Landwirtschaft und Nutztierhaltung, bei der ländlichen Entwicklung, beim Gewässerschutz, der Trinkwasserversorgung oder der Ernährungssicherheit. Informative Texte, anschauliche Länderbeispiele und nützliche Links liefern einen umfassenden Überblick über die aktuelle globale Problemlage. Berücksichtigt werden dabei sämtliche Anwendungsbereiche und Errungenschaften, aber auch die verschiedensten Risiken, die mit dem Gebrauch von Antibiotika einhergehen. Ganz im Sinne des OneHealth-Ansatzes werden dabei neben der Humanmedizin auch die Veterinärmedizin, die Antibiotika-Produktion oder auch Umweltaspekte angesprochen.

Sample checklist of national action plan development support tools

World Health Organization WHO, (2016)

A series of tools and templates have been developed by WHO, FAO and OIE to accompany the manual for developing national action plans on antimicrobial resistance

Antimicrobial resistance

World Health Organization; Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, (2016)

A manual for developing national action plans.This manual for developing national action plans to address antimicrobial resistance has been developed at the request of the World Health Assembly to assist countries in the initial phase of developing new, or refining existing national action plans in line with the strategic objectives of the Global Action Plan. It proposes an incremental approach that countries can adapt to the specific needs, circumstances and available resources of each individual country. Details of actions to be taken will vary according to national contexts

Antimicrobial Resistance (Part 1 and 2). E-Learning Course

Clark, A.; and M.P.Joshi, Eds.: Global Health Elearning Center, (2016)

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) occurs when disease-causing pathogens are able to withstand the killing or suppressing power of antimicrobial medicines. This phenomenon increases the global burden of infectious diseases and strains health systems.This course aims to improve the learner's awareness and understanding of the basic principles of AMR, the impact AMR has on individuals and society, and why it is a major public health concern. A complementary course, Antimicrobial Resistance (Part 2), describes interventions that address the multiple factors contributing to AMR across the health system.
