Vietnam is a lower-middle-income country in Southeast Asia with rising burdens of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in a number of important bacterial pathogens and high levels of antibiotic use both in hospital and in community. At OUCRU Vietnam, we conducted research studies to understand the roles of different contextual and environmental determinants in the development and spread of AMR to inform targeted interventions for control and prevention. Our research evidence to date demonstrates the complex picture of the interactions between different reservoirs, the determinants and their impact on AMR, and highlight the challenges for intervention actions in the local context.

Dr Vũ Thị Lan Hương, MPH. DPhil., is a Senior Research Fellow at OUCRU Ha Noi. Her research primarily focuses on two key areas: the development and transmission of antimicrobial resistance in healthcare settings, and evaluating the effectiveness of public health interventions in Asia.
