In a public consultation, the Inter-agency Expert Group on Sustainable Development Goals indicators (IAEG-SDG) proposed an Antimicrobial Resistance(AMR)-specific indicator. This is the first suggested AMR-specific indicator among potential changes to the metrics tracking progress on the United Nations’ SDGs. The World Health Organization-proposed indicator on AMR is among the potential changes to Goal 3 (Good Health and Wellbeing). This proposal would aim to “reduce the percentage of bloodstream infections due to selected antimicrobial resistant organisms”. Earlier this year, ReAct highlighted antibiotic resistance’s implications for the Sustainable Development Goals and supports this proposed SDG indicator.
