RHDC on Antimicrobial Resistance

(Sofia, Bulgaria)

The Regional Health Development Center on Antimicrobial Resistance (RHDC AMR) was officially inaugurated in 2011 at the National Centre of Infectious and Parasitic Diseases in Sofia, Bulgaria, which is also a WHO collaborating centre for communicable diseases surveillance.

Its principal role is to coordinate the collaboration between public health institutions in the field of microbiology so to provide for sustainable development of national and regional surveillance programmes on antimicrobial drug resistance in the SEEHN countries. Thus, the RHDC AMR aims to establish a network of competent experts and bodies across the region for exchange of relevant information, knowledge and good practices as well as to further promote the collaboration between laboratories in the SEEHN countries for national and international surveillance of antimicrobial drug resistance.
