High carriage rates of multi-drug resistant Gram-negative bacteria in neonatal intensive care units from Ghana
Carriage of multidrug resistant (MDR) Gram-negative bacteria (GN) in hospitalized neonates may increase the risk of difficult-to-treat invasive infections at neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). Data on MDR GN-carriage among hospitalized newborns in Africa is limited.
High carriage rates of MDR GN including carbapenemase-producing enterobacterales may be an emerging problem in NICUs in Africa.
