Andrija Stampar Teaching Institute of Public Health was active member of The Global Sewage Surveillance project consortium.

The published results are available in study described in further detail in an article in the highly regarded scientific journal Nature Communications: Global monitoring of antimicrobial resistance based on metagenomics analyses of urban sewage. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-019-08853-3. 

The study was funded through grants from the Novo Nordisk Foundation, the Velux Foundation and via the EU-funded project COMPARE (http://www.compare-europe.eu/).

The Global Sewage Monitoring Consortium has members from 60 countries. Part of their vision is to produce knowledge that prevents disease and promotes health. Participation in e.g. the sewage project also helps to support the UN's Sustainable Development Goal of ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all.
