IDSA has convened a new national stakeholder group to create awareness and mobilize the public to respond to the crisis of antimicrobial resistance. The new group, the U.S. Stakeholder Forum on Antimicrobial Resistance, or “S-FAR,” was convened on the principle that any U.S. government strategy to address antimicrobial resistance should involve sustained and meaningful engagement with non-government experts and stakeholders throughout the policy development and implementation process. |
More than 70 national health organizations, representing medical and allied health professionals, hospitals and other healthcare facilities, patients and consumers, public health, research and advocacy, industry, and international health, have joined the partnership thus far. S-FAR partners will convene for an inaugural meeting in Philadelphia on Oct. 9 during IDWeek2014.
