2017-2019 - Antimicrobial susceptibility of Salmonella in New Zealand


Hospital and community laboratories are requested to refer all Salmonella isolated from human salmonellosis cases to ESR as part of the laboratory-based surveillance of this disease. Salmonella from other sources, including food, animal and environmental sources, are also referred to ESR for epidemiological typing. All typhoidal and recognised multidrug-resistant Salmonella are tested every year. Every third year the antimicrobial susceptibility of a representative sample of non-typhoidal isolates is tested.
