Abrégé

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.
