"The best and worst of times in antimicrobial stewardship: experiences from the UK"
Date and Time: Monday 18th September, 2023 from 1:00 to 2:30PM EAT.
Dr. Herbert Bush Aguma, Pharmacist and Lecturer, Department of Pharmacy, Makerere University.

About the Seminar:
The improper use of antimicrobial drugs in the human, animal, and environmental sectors has led to an international public health issue known as antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Antimicrobial Stewardship —AMS is a collection of coordinated actions that maximize the use of antimicrobial agents in order to produce the best clinical results, improve patient safety, and lower the likelihood that AMR will develop.
Natasha and Aarash will be at Makerere University to facilitate the execution of a project on employing a One Health Approach on antimicrobial stewardship hosted by Makerere University Colleges of; Health Sciences (CHS), Veterinary Medicine, Animal Resources and Bio-security (CoVAB) and Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES).
All students and faculty are invited to join the seminar.
