Online consultation: Interagency Coordination Group (IACG) on Antimicrobial Resistance draft work plan

Web consultation is open until 31 August 2017.

The establishment of the Interagency Coordination Group on Antimicrobial Resistance (IACG) was mandated by UN General Assembly Resolution A/RES/71/3. Member States asked the Secretary-General to establish, in consultation with WHO, FAO and OIE, an ad hoc interagency coordination group to provide practical guidance for approaches needed to ensure sustained effective global action to address antimicrobial resistance, including options to improve coordination, taking into account the global action plan on antimicrobial resistance.

The IACG’s first face-to-face meeting was held 2-3 May 2017 at UN Headquarters in New York. A second meeting was held by teleconference on 30 June 2017 to discuss the group’s work plan for 2017-2019. The draft work plan is now available for your review and we invite your input on it, particularly in identifying areas of AMR that you believe the work plan does not address.

Disclaimer: WHO will publish summaries of all comments received from Member States, United Nations agencies and other non-State actors during the consultation process.
