The YAAR! project brings together young people from four countries in the Global South to help combat the challenge of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), or drug resistance infections.
Central to the YAAR! project is collaboration with young people from four countries in the Global South: Kenya, Nepal, Thailand and Vietnam. These young people are working together with the YAAR! project team to do two things:
to identify and evaluate age-appropriate messages about AMR
to identify effective platforms for engaging and empowering young people to act to mitigate the increasing global health risks that AMR brings.
YAAR! is coordinated by a project team located across four countries in the Global South and supported by Wellcome.
The project team is working with four Youth Working Groups who are core to the project:
YAAR! Kenya YAAR! Nepal YAAR! Thailand YAAR! Vietnam
