Working Group 2


Group Coordinators: Mary E. Wiktorowicz / Arne Ruckert

The objective of Working Group 2 is to develop a One Health framework for analyzing global and state governance of AMR surveillance by identifying the factors and variables important to include in analyses of AMR governance and policy and convey the manner in which they are linked and interdependent. The approach used is to develop, in a first step, a scoping review on the governance dimensions of One Health antimicrobial resistance surveillance to identify relevant variables to support the development of the analytic framework. The framework would guide and support case studies and comparative analyses conducted through related Working Groups.

Second, Working Group 2 will conduct a scan of 15 existing AMR surveillance tools to identify potential governance dimensions absent from the tools and propose additional evaluation questions to support each tool.
