​The One Health Antimicrobial Resistance Workgroup, comprising the Ministry of Health (MOH), Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA), National Environment Agency (NEA) and PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency, has developed a National Strategic Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance.pdf​. The Plan provides a framework to strengthen and enhance activities to combat AMR, addresses identified gaps and prioritises future interventions. It builds on many years of work to combat AMR in Singapore, and unifies existing initiatives mounted across the human, animal, food, and environment sectors. 

The Plan aims to reduce the emergence and prevent the spread of drug-resistant organisms through 5 core strategies:
  • Education;
  • Surveillance and Risk Assessment;
  • Research;
  • Prevention and Control of Infection; and
  • Optimisation of Antimicrobial Use
