Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the world’s most pressing and urgent global health threats— one that could erode the current progress against tuberculosis (TB), malaria, HIV/AIDS, and many other infectious diseases.
In conjunction with World Antibiotic Awareness Week (14-20 November), the SIAPS Program has published a technical program update on Combating Antimicrobial Resistance with Stronger Health Systems.
This update discusses how SIAPS is working to address AMR through a health system strengthening approach, with interventions spanning the global, regional, national, and local levels.
SIAPS also recently released a related publication, System-based Approaches to Improving Medication Adherence. The report looks at medication adherence through a systems strengthening lens and describes multiple strategies and tools to support better adherence, particularly in resource-limited settings.
