Antimicrobial Resistance Awareness

AMR with IFMSA

This year IPSF has developed a variety of activities related to antimicrobial resistance. Click here to find the article written by IPSF and IVSA on the topic and here to find the campaign kit developed by IPSF.

Now, under the banner of One Health and collaboration the International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation (IPSF), International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA) and International Veterinary Student’s Association (IVSA), we have created a survey to better gauge the level of understanding, amongst healthcare students, of the consequence of antimicrobial resistance in all spheres of life.

You can access the survey here.

Looking to gain deeper knowledge into antimicrobial resistance? We recommend the online course “Antimicrobial Stewardship: Managing Antibiotic Resistance” from the University of Dundee. The course will start on September 28 2015 and lasts 6 weeks, requiring only 3h weekly.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to email Ms. Lara-Turiya Seitz, Medicine Awareness Coordinator at medicineawareness@ipsf.org or Ms. Bárbara Scoralick Villela, Chairperson of Public Health at publichealth@ipsf.org. We would also kindly request that if you run a campaign on this topic or using our provided materials, that you submit a report.
