Abstract

Ghada Omer Shouna*, Maye Abu Omar, Samira Hamid Abdelrahman

ABSTRACT

The issue of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a priority area identified by the Government of Sudan and development partners. This paper is part of a rapid assessment using the available documents covering all relevant fields pertaining to AMR. Documents were obtained from relevant websites for policies, strategies, guidelines, reports, and plans from relevant organisations at the federal level as well as interviews with relevant individuals from WHO office Sudan, Federal Ministry of Health, Ministry of Environment, Ministry of General Education, and Sudan Medical Council in Khartoum. The review was guided by the five strategic objectives of Global Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance (GAP). This paper focuses on one of the objectives on improving awareness and understanding of AMR. The importance of promoting the rational use of antibiotics and raising the awareness about AMR is acknowledged and efforts have been made by relevant stakeholders. However, lack of harmony and collaboration between different institutions to promote one message in relation to AMR remains a challenge. In addition, limited teaching of AMR in health sciences professional education and general education in schools is limited due to low capacity in terms of technical expertise and training material.

Keywords: antimicrobial resistance, education, multisectoral action, Sudan, training.
