1st Fight Against Antimicrobial Resistance (FAAMR) annual competition (2019)


As a health worker, you would like to spread awareness of AMR to the attendants of patients in a Hospital in-patient ward. Using the World Health Organization Global Action Plan on AMR objectives as a guide (https://www.who.int/antimicrobial-resistance/global-action-plan/en/), design a poster (one page) in English that will enable you to accomplish this goal. Posters that display the One Health Approach are encouraged (refer to the WHO Global Action Plan on AMR)

Submit your poster to faamrteam@gmail.com


  1. This competition is limited to students of Makerere University College of Health Sciences from 2nd year to 5th year
  2. You are encouraged to work in teams of a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 5 individuals. Individual submissions will not be reviewed.
  3. In your submission, attach a narrative (not more than half a page) explaining your poster. This narrative should include the specific WHO Global Action Plan on AMR objective which inspired your poster. Do not include this narrative in the poster. Attach it as a separate document. Therefore, your submission should have two documents: the first is the poster, and the second is the narrative.
  4. Give your team a creative name and include it in the narrative. Include the names of the team members in the narrative

The deadline for submission is 24th October 2019

The winners will be announced on the 1st Annual Makerere College of Health Sciences Students Alumni Convention on 1st November 2019
