ABSTRACT

Technical Brief on Water, Sanitation, Hygiene and Wastewater Management to Prevent Infections and Reduce the Spread of Antimicrobial Resistance   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "This technical brief provides information to inform water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and wastewater elements within multi-sectoral antimicrobial resistance (AMR) national action plans (NAPs). It includes a summary of evidence and the co-benefits rationale for action in each sector and presents a menu of actions for consideration and refinement in each country context. The technical brief also identifies sector specific policy options and additional information, including knowledge gaps and research needs, as well as additional technical resources to support planning and implementation. Where evidence is weak or lacking, actions proposed are cost-effective measures with wider co-benefits for health that plausibly contribute to combatting AMR."
