Join us on Monday 11th July at 9am BST / 10 am CET / 4pm China Standard Time for a live event on antimicrobial resistance of thermophilic Campylobacter in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Thermophilic Campylobacter species are clinically important aetiologies of gastroenteritis in humans throughout the world. The colonization of different animal reservoirs by Campylobacter poses an important risk for humans through shedding of the pathogen in livestock waste and contamination of water sources, environment, and food. A review of published articles was conducted to obtain information on the prevalence and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) profiles of thermophilic Campylobacter species in humans and animals in sub-Saharan Africa.
Dr Noel Gahamanyi, Lecturer of Microbiology in the School of Medicine and Pharmacy, College of Medicine and Health Sciences, University of Rwanda, will guide us through the findings of his systematic review, Prevalence, Risk Factors, and Antimicrobial Resistance Profiles of Thermophilic Campylobacter Species in Humans and Animals in Sub-Saharan Africa in International Journal of Microbiology, before a live Q&A session.
