In February 2020 we held our first international workshop of the COMBAT AMR in Africa Network titled "Global threat yet local problem - antimicrobial resistance in sub-Saharan Africa" at the Hirsch Institute of Tropical Medicine in Asella, Ethiopia.
Komfo Ankye Teaching Hospital
The Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) is the second largest hospital in Ghana with a total bed capacity of 1,200. For the Ashanti region, KATH is the only tertiary health facility. KATH is involved in the training of medical students, junior doctors and nurses, and provides well-equipped medical and laboratory facilities. The geographical location of KATH, Ghana’s well-developed road network, and the commercial nature of Kumasi make KATH accessible to all the areas that share boundaries with the Ashanti Region and other regions farther away.
