Antimicrobial drug resistance in urinary tract infections in Indonesia.


The aim of the project is to develop efficient and sustainable surveillance strategies for antimicrobial resistance in Indonesia (see LQAS project). It implemented both conventional and LQAS-based drug resistance surveys in both the outpatient- and the inpatient setting. The project harbors additional add-on studies in the field of AMR surveillance, antimicrobial stewardship, and antibiotics use.
