Phulu B, Kagoya HR, Ludman M 2014. Promoting the Prevention of Antimicrobial Resistance in Ohangwena Region, Namibia. Submitted to the US Agency for International Development by the Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) Program. Arlington, VA: Management Sciences for Health.
SIAPS supported the University of Namibia School of Medicine (UNAM-SOM) to facilitate a continuing professional development (CPD) activity with health practitioners and regional management teams in Namibia’s Ohangwena region on strategies to combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR), including HIV drug resistance (HIV-DR), and the use of early warning indicators (EWI) for early detection and action. The UNAM facilitator at the CPD activity was a participant of the AMR/rational medicines use (RMU) workshop in 2013. A total of 25 participants including nurses, doctors, and pharmacy personnel were trained in AMR, HIV-DR, and EWIs. At the end of the one-day workshop, the participants designed an action plan to promote activities for reducing the development of AMR in their respective districts and health facilities.
