Wellcome announces new efforts to survey global antmicrobial resistance
Wellcome has launched a new initiative to help improve surveillance of global drug-resistant infections.
The (SEDRIC), which launched on 30 January 2018, aims to help countries track the spread of drug-resistant infections, and to improve processes of data sharing and analysis. Through this, they hope to reduce the global impact of antimicrobial resistance.
SEDRIC’s board is chaired by , a clinical microbiologist at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and the Wellcome Sanger Institute. The board also includes , professor of pharmaceutical microbiology at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria.
Peacock said the new consortium would build on work by others, including the (GLASS) and the . SEDRIC would, she said, work to identify critical gaps and barriers to surveillance efforts, and will help countries adopt sustainable best practices and strategies:
“We will provide technical expertise and knowledge, but will also look at how technology might be better employed to strengthen existing surveillance networks and activities,” she said.
