Join the first event of our collaborative initiative "Innovative approaches for community-wide engagement on antibiotic resistance - A webinar and workshop series to promote systematic and meaningful engagement of communities and civil society groups as key stakeholders in the global response to antibiotic resistance."

This webinar will explore approaches and key learnings from community engagement initiatives on antibiotic resistance worldwide. More specifically, we will (i) introduce community engagement in the context of antibiotic resistance, (ii) provide insights into ongoing initiatives from both high- and low-and-middle-income countries, and (iii) explore key learnings from related fields. The learnings from this webinar will set the basis for the following webinar on evaluation and impact, as well as the final workshop, where we will have a hands-on discussion and dive deeper into strategies and methods for community engagement.
