Convergence in evaluation frameworks for integrated surveillance of AMR (CoEval-AMR PHASE 2)

How can One Health surveillance for AMR and AMU be optimized? The objective is to develop consolidated and harmonized guidelines for the evaluation of integrated One Health surveillance systems for AMR and AMU, including methods for the evaluation of its governance and impacts.

An integrated approach to surveillance spanning different sectors has been promoted by international organisations for more than a decade and constitutes a central recommendation of the WHO action plan on AMR. The objective of the CoEval-AMR Network is to develop consolidated guidance for evaluation that addresses the specific needs of integrated One Health surveillance systems for AMR and AMU. Activities targeted for this proposal called “Co-Eval-AMR PHASE 2” include the development of methods and metrics for the evaluation of governance and impacts of One Health surveillance, and their application to selected country-based case studies. Two scientific workshops will be held to build on researchers’ experience and expertise, and consolidated guidance will be developed and made publicly available through the existing online websites. Results will allow for a better understanding of the added value of integrated surveillance for AMR, and to compare integrated surveillance governance strategies across countries in order to identify the most effective and efficient approaches.
