The event has been organised by a number of parties including the Zambian Ministry of Health and Zambia National Public Health Institute (ZNPHI). Blue Frontier has been invited to attend because of our involvement in helping to develop and support an exciting new anti-microbial resistance (AMR) surveillance initiative, working with FIND (Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics) and eSHIFT Partner Network. This project has been funded by the UK's Global Antimicrobial Resistance Fund.
AMR, or anti-microbial resistance, is a growing danger to human health as antibiotics, our last line of defence against disease, are becoming increasingly less effective in neutralising new and mutating disease threats.
Zambia's initiative is as ambitious as it is far reaching, covering human, animal and environmental health, and at Blue Frontier we are proud to have been able to deploy our brand new platform 'Open Interop' in support of the program.
James Fry, Blue Frontier's Managing Director, said:
"It is both exciting and rewarding to be actively involved in the fight againstanti-microbial resistance. We are very proud to be considered among the world's leading experts on interoperability, and we're grateful to our partners in supporting us with this work. We look forward to sharing a case study on this project, and releasing more information about our open-source software platform - Open Interop."
