Harnessing Simple Project Management Skills for Effective Youth Engagement in Antimicrobial Resistance
Hi there, welcome and thank you for considering to register for this webinar! World AMR Awareness week will be celebrated this year from 18th - 24th November as it happens every year. Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), named as one of the top 10 global health threats by World Health Organization occurs when bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites no longer respond to antimicrobial agents. As a result of drug resistance, antibiotics and other antimicrobial agents become ineffective and infections become difficult or impossible to treat, increasing the risk of disease spread, severe illness and death. This webinar is being held as a curtain-raise and to usher our youth to World AMR Awareness Week. We appreciate and highly recognize all the great efforts, and initiatives you have prepared for the week, and we organized this webinar as part of a webinar series to help you implement the initiatives effectively, and in best practice to ensure optimal impact and for your growth too. We will learn more about basics of project management, and how to embrace skills such as; effective planning, efficient implementation, monitoring and evaluation, and project dissemination. Our esteemed guest speaker will be Mimi MELLES-BREWER, Technical Officer, Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) AMR Awareness, and Campaigns at World Health Organization Headquarters, who has vast experience and deep expertise in engaging with the youth. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you in the webinar! Please share with colleagues too!

Role of Biocides/Antiseptics on Antimicrobial Resistance
The environment within us has been shown to play a big role in the development and subsequent spread of antimicrobial Resistance (AMR). Biocides such as insecticides, disinfectants and pesticides are chemicals used in medicine, agriculture, and industries to control harmful organisms. However, these chemicals have been attributable to the occurrence of AMR in the environment. How can we regulate the production and monitor the use of these important chemicals for prevention of AMR in the environment? Join us in this upcoming webinar to learn more about the interconnection and regulation of use and production of Biocides for the prevention of AMR in the environment.
