The BSAC and Pfizer’s collaborative project ‘Establishing Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS) Centres of Excellence to Improve Patient Outcomes by Addressing Access Disparities’, invited healthcare facilities around the world to submit project proposals detailing their specific resource limitation with respect to AMS and their plans for quality improvement work to address these. BSAC will provide support via mentorship and provision of curated education resources. The project will culminate with submission for accreditation via GAMSAS to establish regional centres of excellence for AMS.
Teams from over 50 organisations across all world regions submitted a project proposal and AMS experts from Africa and South America joined BSAC and Pfizer experts to review each application and select the top 10 proposals.
Today, we are pleased to announce that the following teams have been selected:
We look forward to working with these teams over the next 3 years to support this important initiative to develop and spread good practice in AMS and help tackle the global threat of antimicrobial resistance.
