Abstract: In support of WHO and Member States efforts to implement the Global Action plan on Antimicrobial Resistance (GAP AMR), WHO has published a competency framework for health workers’ education and training on antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The competency framework is one of several products being developed by WHO in collaboration with partners and leading research institutions to address the first objective of the GAP AMR, which is to improve awareness and understanding of AMR through effective communication, education and training. The framework is a matrix menu of core and additional knowledge, skills and attitudes for health workers in the field of human health. It is designed to be used as a reference guide and applied according to local priorities and needs. The ultimate aim is to ensure that all health workers are equipped with the requisite competencies at pre-service education and in-service training levels to address AMR in policy and practice settings.
