INFECTIONS in an Urbanizing World - Humans, Animals, Environments

  • Forschungsfragen

    A central research question of the alliance is on how to implement effective and cost-effective measures curbing antimicrobial resistance.

    Beitrag zu internationaler Forschung

    The allicance's aim is to advance the state of knowledge, contribute to the development of counter measures and to provide tailored policy recommendations.

    Forschungsdesign und Methoden

    The alliance uses an interdisciplinary approach combining inter alia empirical research with theoretcial modelling.

    As one of the partner institutes of INFECTIONS, the GIGA is primarily concerned with current developments in the field of "Antimicrobial Stewardship". This includes, for example, the analysis of the status of the implementation of the national action plans for the containment of antimicrobial resistance in Germany, but also in the countries of the Global South, as demanded by the WHO. At the micro level, the GIGA will evaluate a number of measures for more efficient use of antibiotics (especially in the area of diagnostics) and assess them for cost-benefit. This will be done largely in cooperation with the Bernhard-Nocht-Institute for Tropical Medicine (BNITM). As part of its work within the network, the GIGA will develop concrete recommendations for policy-makers.

    Ten Things to Watch in Africa in 2022

    Zwei Jahre nach Beginn der Pandemie mehren sich die Anzeichen, dass sich Subsahara-Afrika im Jahr 2022 leicht erholen wird. Die unzureichende Versorgung Impfstoffen, Gewaltkonflikte und strukturelle Schwächen bleiben jedoch Herausforderungen für die Region. Wir präsentieren eine Analyse von „ten things to watch“ in Afrika.
