Policy Brief 45, October 2017
The Value Added of the United Nations General Assembly High–Level Political Declaration on Antimicrobial Resistance
In September 2016, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York held a dedicated meeting to muster strong political commitment for an effective global response to the problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). As a result, a High-Level Political Declaration on Antimicrobial Resistance was adopted.
The High-Level Political Declaration reaffirms that the blueprint for tackling AMR is the World Health Organization (WHO) Global Strategy and Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance, its five objectives, and the principles for effective national action plans: a one-health approach, prevention first, and access.
This policy brief is a synthesis of the main elements of the Declaration that add value to the comprehensive WHO Global Strategy and Action Plan on AMR (GAP).
