Project Data Last Updated: 11/01/2021
IATI Identifier: GB-GOV-10-AMR_SORT_IT
The aim of this programme is to build sustainable operational research capacity to generate and utilize evidence on the emergence, spread and health impact of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), in order to limit this public health problem. The project uses the Structured Operational Research and Training Initiative (SORT IT) and targets a number of low- and middle-income countries, with special focus on Fleming Fund supported countries.Objectives
1. To build adequate and sustainable local Operational Research (OR) capacity on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) 2. To support OR for: a) Improved surveillance and monitoring of the AMR situation in countries. b) Identifying drivers of antimicrobial drug resistance in human populations. c) Improving antimicrobial stewardship and procedural interventions 3. To build adequate and sustainable structures and processes for evidence-informed decision-making at national level. 4. To foster mechanisms for knowledge sharing to maximize the potential for broader research impact.
