A Resource for Change: Harnessing gender insights to tackle antimicrobial resistance

In different parts of the world, gender norms influence the improper use of antibiotics, which drives antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Helping researchers to consider the interplay between gender and AMR in their particular contexts is the central aim of a new resource, developed by the Human Sciences Research Council and Jive Media Africa in South Africa, and Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit in Thailand. Agnes Loriba and Kavitha Sriparamananthan are gender experts in Ghana and Vietnam, respectively, who participated in consultative workshops to refine the resource.
