Tackling antimicrobial resistance: developing and implementing antimicrobial stewardship interventions in four African commonwealth countries through a health partnership model

  04 May 2023

In recent years, health partnerships have shared infection prevention and control (IPC) innovations between United Kingdom (UK) hospitals and Low-Middle-Income Countries (LMICs). However, none had focused on antimicrobial stewardship (AMS), a core component of tackling antimicrobial resistance (AMR). This paper documents an effective approach to developing a programme to increase antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) capacity in four African countries: Ghana, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia as part of the Commonwealth Partnerships for Antimicrobial Stewardship (CwPAMS) programme.

The overall score assigned to the programme following evaluation using the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development Assistance Committee (OECD-DAC) Evaluation Criteria was 82% (very good).
