Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)

Antimicrobial resistance is recognised as a pressing global health challenge. This lecture will present the latest evidence on the burden of AMR, drivers of AMR, and current initiatives to address AMR. 


About the speaker:

Prof Clare Chandler is a medical anthropologist and the co-Director of the LSHTM Antimicrobial Resistance Centre, which works to inspire innovation through interdisciplinary engagements.

Her research interests lie in the application of anthropological methods and theory to policies and practices relating to medicine use, diagnostic testing, management of febrile illnesses and health care improvement interventions. Her current research focus is antimicrobial resistance.

Clare leads the Anthropology of Antimicrobial Resistance research group, a dynamic group of anthropologists addressing this issue through a number of research projects.


The lecture will be recorded by the multimedia team and made available on the LSHTM Vimeo website.
