Skills Building Workshop: Combating AMR in Resource-Constrained Settings 

This workshop offered practical experience to health care professionals, public health officials, policy makers, donors, and implementers on strategies to improve antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) and IPC in health facilities in resource-constrained settings. We used case studies and scenarios from our implementation of AMS and IPC interventions in various countries to facilitate group discussions and generate practical recommendations that participants can adapt for their local contexts.
