I am about to complete a five month Online training for the AMRLEP organized by ReAct Africa and SAS Africa, and running a final year research “antimicrobial susceptibility profiles of Escherichia coli isolated from selected commercial broiler chicken farms in Luwero Town council, Uganda. Also, I attended an online study and training on the current Topics in Microbiology with the Nottingham Trent University-Makerere University partnership from 21st September to 9th October 2020.
The various named online courses and being a member of the Antimicrobial Stewardship, Optimum Access, and Use Community-Uganda have improved my knowledge and skills about One Health programs concerning AMR. While offering both depth and breadth across this field, the AMRLEP courses have put into perspective the importance and relevance of my AMR stewardship and the application of its fundamentals to the problems faced by the real world. In addition I learnt about the emergence and spread of Antibiotic resistance in the real life situations and how the superbugs have become a silent tsunami.
