Situation and Needs Assessment Tool Development
The situation and needs assessment package will be designed to provide a comprehensive overview of current national-level policies and practices in place in each country to address antimicrobial resistance.
A key outcome of the project is to package the various assessment and data collection tools into a cohesive kit for wider distribution. The tools will be made available to other countries, particularly low- and middle-income countries, that are in the process of assessing and building their capacity to manage antimicrobial resistance.
In collaboration with Pacific Island Countries, the COMBAT-AMR project team will launch the situation and needs assessment package remotely via:
- Online discussions with technical personnel in Australia with country staff to fill out the theme level assessment tool questions
- Country staff completion of questions on site, with support from technical staff in Australia
- Country Coordinators collecting the information for national level analysis, with support from the project team and country counterparts
