Description: 

The Australian Government has released the first Implementation Plan to support the National Antimicrobial Resistance Strategy 2015-2019.

The Implementation Plan outlines Focus Areas for activity, as well as specific actions being undertaken by the Australian Government, State and Territory Governments, non-government organisations, professional bodies and research organisations. The Plan incorporates activities being undertaken across various sectors to encourage and enable collaboration and information sharing. These activities contribute to the establishment of an evidence base and better target our efforts to address gaps and ensure appropriate policies and programs are in place to limit the development of antimicrobial resistance.
