Evaluating Antimicrobial Resistance surveillance in the United Kingdom from a One Health perspective
The aim of the project is to assess the value of integrated antimicrobial resistance (AMR) surveillance systems in the UK. Our objective is to produce a specific tool to evaluate the performance of AMR integrated surveillance systems, which will allow us to assess whether integrated surveillance generates an added value. This will enable policy makers to make the most cost effective decisions.
