Global sewage surveillance project

Project Details


The project will serve as proof‐of‐concept for applying metagenomic approaches, which could initiate a global surveillance of human infectious diseases including antimicrobial resistance from sewage collected in major cities around the world to detect, control, prevent and predict human infectious diseases.
Along with The National Food Institute, DTU (WHO Collaborating Centre and European Union Reference Laboratory for Antimicrobial Resistance in Foodborne Pathogens), several other partners from COMPARE are involved in this joint study with WHO, including Erasmus MC, The Netherlands, and National Institute for Public Health and the Environment, RIVM (WHO Collaborating Centre for Risk Assessment of Pathogens in Water and Food).
