This course consists of three weekly modules addressing the following topics. In the first week, we’ll talk about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the progress that has been made in the fight against AMR. In the second week, we’ll talk about better diagnostics, surveillance, and reporting for AMR. And in the third week, which is the final week, we’ll talk about building back better after a pandemic for a more robust AMR response. At the end of each week, you can take a quiz to see what you’ve learned. The course format consists of videos, articles, slide presentations, case studies, and a discussion forum. All of our course materials are downloadable to facilitate classroom teaching, tutorials, and in-service training in healthcare institutions.
