The AMR Challenge is a way for governments, private industries, and non-governmental organizations worldwide to make formal commitments that further the progress against antimicrobial resistance. The challenge encourages a One Health approach, recognizing that the health of people is connected to the health and animals and the environment.
The AMR Challenge launched at the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in September 2018. Organizations can make commitments beginning September 25, 2018 until September 2019.
CDC will feature commitments throughout the year.
At the 2019 UN General Assembly, antimicrobial resistance will continue to be a priority topic for world leaders.
