Central Asian and Eastern European Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance(CAESAR). Annual report 2017
This report describes resistance data gathered through the Central Asian and Eastern European Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance (CAESAR) network from nine countries in the WHO European Region– Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Montenegro, the Russian Federation, Serbia, Switzerland, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Turkey – and Kosovo (in accordance with United Nations Security Council resolution 1244 (1999)). Guidance is provided to the reader on how to interpret the surveillance data with caution, taking into account conditions which may reduce the reliability and representativeness of the data. The aim of this report is to provide guidance and inspiration to countries that are building or strengthening their national antimicrobial resistance surveillance and to stimulate the sharing of data internationally. WHO and its partners remain committed to support countries in these endeavours through the activities of the CAESAR network.
