Online course - free and ongoing

Tackling Antimicrobial Resistance

The Fleming Fund and the Open University are offering 19 freely availably modules on their Tackling Antimicrobial Resistance course.

The aim of the course is to help you to identify, develop and apply skills and knowledge relevant to your role as an AMR professional in order to change and improve your working practice and the practice of people with whom you work.

Each module should take 6 hours to complete, but you can work through them at your own pace. You will be awarded a digital badge for completing each of the modules in this course (except AMR surveillance and you). Digital badges are similar to a certificate: they demonstrate that you have gained a skill, or are evidence of your work and achievement on a module. When you complete all the modules in a pathway you have enrolled on, you will be issued with a Statement of Participation for the pathway.

Access further information and how to enroll here.

This event was hosted by the Esther Alliance. IHR Strengthening Project Lead, Ahmed Razavi spoke at the event.

Institutional Health Partnerships are important, and the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted their importance even more. At the same time it is important that these partnerships are truly equal, allowing for mutual learning. It is therefore important not only to evaluate the implementation of a specific project, but the quality of the partnership itself.  In this we webinar we invited our speakers to discuss the following:  

  • Why should we evaluate Institutional partnerships? 
  • How can we make the most of the results of such an evaluation? 
  • Lessons learnt from the partnerships’ evaluation processes.
