Daisy WinnerBlog, Medicine, Uganda

Drug and antibiotic resistance is increasingly becoming a global problem, and having more and more of an impact on patient care and health.  On November 21st and 22nd in Mbale Uganda, various stakeholders came together at the first National Conference on Antimicrobial Resistance.  The conference brought participants from the World Health Organization, The Ministry of Health, The National Animal Industry and Fisheries, as well as leaders in laboratory sciences, clinical practice, and veterinary medicine.  The conference focused on finding new and innovative ways to create a multi-sector response to the issue.  Also in attendance were medical students from Busitema University, a supporter of the conference .  Seed had the opportunity to talk to a few of them and hear about what inspired them to pursue a career in medicine, and how they hope to make a difference in their community as doctors.  Check out the videos to hear their responses!
