Please note: Enrolment on these course has been switched off. Please enrol on the new version at Tackling Antimicrobial Resistance.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) poses a catastrophic threat on a global scale. In response to this, the UK Department of Health & Social Care (DHSC) launched the Fleming Fund (UK Aid) to support low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in developing AMR surveillance systems.
This learning collection on AMR is an outcome of the work that The Open University UK (OU) is developing within the Fleming Fund and is overseen by Mott MacDonald, specifically the objective to to strengthen capacity through learning in AMR surveillance networks as established by the Fleming Fund.
To date, two learning events have been developed by the OU: the open online course Understanding antimicrobial resistance and the blended learning event The power of data to tackle antimicrobial resistance. More learning materials and events will be developed by the OU between 2018 and 2021.
Currently this collection is available to learners in the three target countries. They will become available to everyone globally in later stages of the project.
If you require any more information about the collection or the project, send an email to IDO-Fleming-Fund@open.ac.uk.
