Promoting gender equality in AMR research to tackle antimicrobial resistance

Members of the antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and gender resource project team facilitated a breakout session at the ReAct Africa and South Centre Annual conference on 14-16 August 2023 in Lusaka, Zambia. This year’s conference was themed ‘Leave No One Behind: Advancing One Health AMR National Action Plans Implementation in Africa’. The sole event to focus on gender and equity considerations helped attendants to identify how gender norms and inequalities might be hampering their AMR work and to begin thinking about potential solutions.
