AMR surveillance is the cornerstone for assessing the burden of AMR and for providing the necessary information for action in support of local, national and global strategies.
One of the five strategic objectives of the global antimicrobial resistance action plan that has been adopted by the sixty-eight World Health Assembly is to strengthen the evidence base through enhanced global surveillance and research.
The goal of this course is to equip the candidate with knowledge and skills that enabling them to collect, analyze and share the data on AMR at a global level, in order to inform decision making, drive local, national and regional action, provide the evidence base for action and advocacy.
