S-FAR Holds Strategy Meeting with over 50 Partner Organizations
IDSA convened a U.S. Stakeholder Forum on Antimicrobial Resistance (S-FAR) in-person strategy meeting in Washington, DC in early September. White House representative Susan Coller-Monarez delivered keynote remarks. Over 50 S-FAR partner organizations attended the meeting, representing human and veterinary medicine, public health, antibiotics and diagnostics industry, consumers and patients, and allied health.

The goal of the meeting was to discuss strategies and priorities for implementing the National Action Plan for Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria (CARB). In the afternoon, the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA) held the first S-FAR subgroup meeting on the human medicine-related antibiotic stewardship components of the CARB plan.
