01 Dec 2022 DRUM – Drivers of Resistance in Uganda and Malawi

Looking at how human behaviour and antibacterial usage in urban and rural East Africa lead to AMR amongst E. coli and K. pneumoniae in humans, animals and the environment and the impact of drug-resistant bloodstream infection (DR-BSI) in humans. Activities will focus on ESBL E. coli (ESBL-E) and K. pneumoniae (ESBL-K) BSI for multiple compelling reasons. These organisms share AMR phenotypes and genes and belong to the same family of bacteria. Materials will undergo whole genome/next generation sequencing and bioinformatics analysis at Wellcome Sanger Institute.

28 Nov 2022 Obtaining Prior Informed Consent for the access to genetic resources for utilization

The applicant submits a relevant application to the Competent National Authority (CNA). Depending on the source location of the genetic resource, the applicant may need to fulfill other permit requirements, such as obtaining a nature permit. The CNA evaluates the application and determines whether to provide the user with a permit establishing standard PIC / MAT. Once an ABS permit is provided, the applicant may be required to fulfill reporting requirements during the period of access and utilization. Refer to the User Guide document for detailed information.
