Surveillance for Antimicrobial Resistance in South Africa-Report

27 Mar 2019

Surveillance for Antimicrobial Resistance in South Africa-Report 

Following a global initiative of combating antimicrobial resistance, South Africa developed the Antimicrobial Resistance National Strategic Framework, 2014-2024. 

The AMR Strategy Framework consists of five objectives:

1. Diagnostic stewardship

2. Enhanced surveillance for AMR

3. Antimicrobial stewardship

4. Prevention including IPCs

5. Vaccination. 

The enhanced surveillance report aimed to generate a consolidated observation of susceptibility pattern to antimicrobials in humans and animals. In addition, this report presents antimicrobial use in humans and animals. Unfortunately, no data on AMR surveillance in animals have been available and an initiative to integrate these two sectors is under review.
