To ensure the upcoming GLASS report’s impact and to inform future data collections, we need to create incentives for participation in GLASS and to contextualise the results to local and national settings. At this half-day side meeting, the WHO Collaborating Centre on AMR Containment (Sweden) together with WHO Headquarters and WHO Collaborating Centres from South Africa and Thailand will present main findings from the first GLASS report and give examples of AMR surveillance in two countries with varying experiences of reporting to GLASS. The WHO AMR Surveillance and Quality Assessment Collaborating Centre Network will also be introduced. The side meeting will be a forum for discussions on what has worked well with the implementation of GLASS, potential improvements as well as obstacles and how to overcome them. The side meeting will consist of presentations, a moderated panel discussion and active participation of the audience. Key messages from the side meeting will be fed into ongoing and future development of the global surveillance system GLASS.
