Combating antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
I’m part of an amazing team that is working on the AMR threats in Kenya. We recently completed the development of a national action plan. During the 2018 World Antibiotic Awareness Week, we launched two new strategies for Kenya, a communication strategy and a surveillance strategy. The nature of AMR is that it’s a multisectoral problem. It requires a lot of collaboration, a lot of partnerships, and everybody needs to pull their weight together, in alignment. This is required to achieve the big goal that we’ve set forth. And that goal is prevention and containment of AMR. Because all of us need to be resistance fighters.
