AMR Action Plan
The Antimicrobial Use and Resistance Situational Analysis and Recommendations report was created in 2017 and released by the Federal Ministries of Agriculture, Environment and Health. This situational analysis informed the AMR National Action Plan for Nigeria 2017-2022, developed under the leadership of the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control, representing the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Health.
The document also included contributions from the Federal Ministries of Agriculture and Rural Development, the Federal Ministry of Environment, research and academic institutions, nongovernmental partners and international development organisations. The goal of the NAP is to “reduce, prevent and slow the evolution of resistant organisms and their impact on health care while ensuring optimal use and improved access to effective, safe and quality assured antimicrobials for continued successful management of infections”.
