Technical Program Update: Combating Antimicrobial Resistance with Stronger Health Systems

antibioticsAntimicrobial 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.

amr-cover-thumbIn 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 AdherenceThe 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.
