A shot in the arm for Kenya’s antibiotics resistance battle

  26 November 2019

Kenya has received approval for a Sh600 million grant to help combat anti-microbial resistance (AMR), believed to be undermining the country’s capacity to treat or control infections and putting the population at a greater risk of chronic illnesses.

The grant, from the Flemming Fund, will support the implementation of the country’s national AMR surveillance strategy, which intends to build the capacity of public health laboratories and other surveillance sites to deal with the problem.

Through this, Kenya hopes to improve laboratory performance, data quality, biosafety and biosecurity, and encourage greater clinical engagement with microbiology services to drive demand for diagnostic bacteriology services.
