This report presents the overall findings of the survey. It provides an analysis, by region and globally, of the initiatives under way to address antimicrobial resistance and identifies areas in which more work is needed. The survey focused on the building blocks that are considered prerequisites to combat antimicrobial resistance: a comprehensive national plan, laboratory capacity to undertake surveillance for resistant microorganisms, access to safe, effective antimicrobial medicines, control of the misuse of these medicines, awareness and understanding among the general public and effective infection prevention and control programmes. Since the survey was conducted, some countries have made further advances and additional initiatives have been launched. No reference therefore is made to individual countries, and the results reflect the situation at the time the questionnaires were completed.
