The ESCMID Study Groups on Public Health Microbiology (ESGPHM) and Epidemiological Markers (ESGEM) published this article that advocates for mobilising pathogen genomic surveillance to contain and mitigate health threats from infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance (AMR), building upon successes achieved by large-scale genome sequencing analysis of SARS-CoV-2 variants in guiding COVID-19 monitoring and public health responses and adopting a One Health approach.

In the run-up to the UNGA (UN General Assembly) meeting in New York, USA in September, ESCMID has organised a petition that we would like to share with you and urge you to sign. Antimicrobial resistance is on the agenda for the meeting and we want to really show global leaders how important this issue is and the lasting consequences if we don’t act now.
