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.
