Chennai Declaration to commonwealth countries
Chief Medical officer England advises British goverment to recommend Chennai Declaration to commonwealth countries.
The UK Government needs to provide support to WHO, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, and the World Organisation for Animal Health in their role of providing coordination and international leadership to give higher priority to this growing global threat. This effort particularly needs to support local initiatives around the world such as the Chennai Declaration5 where, for the first time, medical societies in India came together to discuss the problem of antimicrobial resistance. Given the population flows between the UK and India, it can be seen that such initiatives can have a direct influence on UK health.
