The African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) the Drivers of Resistance in Uganda and Malawi (DRUM) and the African Research Collaboration on Sepsis (ARCS) teams, organised a four-day training workshop for policy implementers working on issues concerning antimicrobial resistance and sepsis. The training hosted participants from various departments of the Ministry of Health, Malawi Liverpool Wellcome Trust, WaterAid, Water and Environmental Sanitation Network and the Center of Medical Research Lambarene (Gabon). During the four day training, participants covered the foundations of evidence-informed policymaking, how to access evidence, how to appraise evidence, how to synthesise evidence and how to apply the evidence in decision making.
