Community Engagement for Antimicrobial Resistance (CE4AMR) is a network of researchers and practitioners who use, or are interested in using, community engagement – in particular participatory and creative approaches – to tackle Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) in low and middle income countries (LMICs).
CE4AMR brings together artists, health professionals, engineers, social and environmental scientists and arts and humanities researchers to create a cross-disciplinary platform through which to share ideas, tackle research gaps and develop new skill sets to address AMR at community level. Rather than regarding community engagement approaches as “add-ons” to research, CE4AMR views them as integral to meeting global recommendations on tackling AMR as stipulated by the World Health Organisation and country-specific AMR action plans.
The Handbook of Community Engagement for Antimicrobial Resistance
The CE4AMR Handbook has been developed through a knowledge exchange network called CE4AMR: The One Health Approach. This work was funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF). The handbook was co-developed by a multidisciplinary team representing the following six research projects, all of which tackle the challenge of antimicrobial resistance through community-based methods in low-middle income countries (LMICs).
