Online

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global health challenge that disproportionately affects low and middle-income countries, where limited resources, inadequate infrastructure, and socioeconomic factors contribute to the spread of resistant pathogens. This course aims to address the unique issues and challenges of antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) in LMICs, providing participants with the knowledge and skills needed to adapt AMS concepts to these specific contexts.

Intended audience:  

Target Audience ID Physicians, Medical Microbiologists, Clinical Pharmac(olog)ists, ICU physicians, Internists, Specialist Nurses, Pediatricians and other medical specialties.

Objectives:

Understand the issues and challenges of AMS in LMICs, to enable participants to better adapt the concepts learned in the other modules to these specific contexts, based on the example of several specific initiatives and solutions. The module will cover three themes: the context (Epidemiology of AMR and Antimicrobial prescription in LMICs); the implementation of AMS programs in LMICs; and the perspectives (researches, innovations, and training programs). This is aimed either at participants wishing to practice directly in these fields, or at those working on global health issues.
