AMR Action Plan

There is an approved National Strategy for Antimicrobial Resistance Containment in Bangladesh: 2017— 2021. This was developed by a multisectoral “Core Working Group” with the support of WHO. The strategy states the importance of effective multisectoral working, whilst anticipating that much of the responsibility of implementation of the strategy will fall on the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

Multisectoral Planning and coordination arrangements are specified down to upazila (subdistrict) level and membership of all these committees is listed, with brief outline terms of reference. A National Action Plan (2017 – 2022) has been developed. Most of this takes the form of a road map stating activities, output indicators, responsible authorities and timeline.
