On 7-8 June 2015, Germany hosted the meeting of the G7 heads of state and government. The summit focused on the global economy and climate change as well as on key foreign, security and development issues.
On health, leaders discussed about Antimicrobial Resistances. Leaders fully support the recently adopted WHO Global Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance. They confirmed their support to develop or review and effectively implement national action plans and support other countries as they develop their own national action plans. They are strongly committed to the One Health approach, encompassing all areas – human, and animal health as well as agriculture and the environment. G7 will foster the prudent use of antibiotics and will engage in stimulating basic research, research on epidemiology, infection prevention and control, and the development of new antibiotics, alternative therapies, vaccines and rapid point-of-care diagnostics.
