From Jul 15 to 19, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine will offer a course on "Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR): A Multidisciplinary Approach," with a focus on One Health approaches in low- and middle-income countries. Reduced fees are available for applicants based in low- and middle-income countries, with applications accepted up to June 15.

The course is aimed at those designing, implementing and evaluating strategies to address AMR. For example, the course would be relevant for members of National Action Plan committees, policy and practice professionals who are required to address and support AMR initiatives, mid-career scientists and postgraduate students, and clinicians who would benefit from an understanding of the public health importance of AMR and actions to tackle the problem. The course will have a specific focus on AMR in low- and middle-income countries. Applicants should have a good command of English, as all teaching will be in English.
