The Collaborating Centre supports the WHO with the implementation of the upcoming Global Action Plan on AMR and the European Strategic Action Plan on Antibiotic Resistance. AMR surveillance provides the necessary insight into the current AMR situation required for an effective and targeted approach to AMR.
WHO Collaborating Centre for Antimicrobial Resistance Epidemiology and Surveillance (abbreviation WHO CC AMR) supports the establishment and strengthening of national AMR surveillance networks in WHO Europe member states by providing technical advice on surveillance methodology and technical support. The main focus of the Collaborating Centre is to advance already existing AMR Surveillance collaborative networks in all WHO Europe member states.
WHO CC AMR is coordinated by Carolien Ruesen and Susan van den Hof, RIVM Centre for Infectious Disease Control.
