The Maternal Sepsis Intervention, focusing on a primary cause of maternal death in Uganda, demonstrates the systemic nature of AMR and the gains that can be made through improved Infection Prevention Control and direct engagement of laboratory testing in antibiotic prescribing.Louise Ackers holds a Chair in Global Social Justice at the University of Salford, UK, and has recently been appointed as a consultant for the World Health Organization.Gavin Ackers-Johnson is Researcher at the University of Salford, UK.Joanne Welsh is Researcher at the University of Salford, UK.Samuel Opio is Secretary General of the Pharmaceutical Society of Uganda.Daniel Kibombo is a Microbiologist at Fort Portal Regional Referral Hospital and the Infectious Disease Institute.
