Co-creating research tools to explore the interplay between antimicrobial resistance and gender

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has become a major global concern with a devastating impact on people’s health and livelihoods. Gender-related inequalities influence access to and use of antibiotics and, as a result, women, men and gender minorities are differently exposed to and impacted by AMR. Despite this, there is a lack of research exploring these linkages. A new project, led by a team from the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) and Jive Media Africa in South Africa, and Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit (MORU) in Thailand, will develop practical tools for integrating a gender and social inclusion lens in AMR innovation and implementation research. The project aims to work with AMR researchers in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in sub-Saharan Africa and South East Asia, to collaboratively create a toolkit.
