This report describes the resistance data from five countries in the WHO European Region gathered through the Central Asian and Eastern European Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance (CAESAR) network. It tells the reader how to interpret the surveillance data with caution, taking account of conditions outside the direct control of the national system for surveillance of antimicrobial resistance; these may reduce the reliability and representativeness of the data. This report aims to provide guidance and inspiration to countries that are building or strengthening their national systems for antimicrobial resistance surveillance and to stimulate the international sharing of data. WHO and its partners remain committed to supporting countries in these endeavours through the activities of the CAESAR network.
