In a bid to foster a multi-coordinated and sustained ONE-Health approach against AMR and involve more stakeholders, Ducit Blue Solutions in conjunction with the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) facilitated an Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) workshop for Nigeria Field Epidemiology Training Program (NFELTP) Cohort 8 Residents on 13-15 September 2017 at the NCDC Reference Lab, Gaduwa, Abuja.
The objectives of the workshop were as follows:
- Create Awareness of AMR and our journey so far
- Disseminate information on NAP and Situation Analysis (SITAN) 1, as well as fill our gaps for SITAN and NAP 2
- Identify work done by current and previous residents and scope for potential surveys / projects to focus on AMR
- Explore opportunities to align work towards contributing to the Global Security, our National Agenda and the 5 Strategic Framework of NAP using “one Health” approach
- Identify publishable work
- Help guide questions for thesis towards AMR.
The workshop was part of the program of activities for the Resident’s seven-week training program following their field experiences with facilitators from academia, health, agriculture and environment sectors in attendance.
The 3-day workshop had facilitators from the tripartite ministries, departments and agencies who spoke on interesting topics ranging from combating AMR for human and animals, IPC including health care waste management, policy reforms, innovative alternatives to antibiotics in animals, standardization of laboratory techniques for surveillance of drug resistant organisms, antimicrobial stewardship and vaccination as an essential tool to reduce antibiotics resistance.
At the end of the workshop, a consensus was made on the key role of the media in creating awareness on the global threat of AMR. It was also said that the while government and policy makers also have a major role to play by providing the needed policy framework, political will and adequate health budgetary allocation to ensure the implementation of the 5 strategic framework pillars. Other resolutions include a continuous prompt and coordinated approach by the tripartite ministries (Health, Agric and Environment), relevant stakeholders and the academia in tackling the growing threat of AMR.
