Antimicrobial Stewardship


Significant health disparities exist in risk for, and outcomes of, infections caused by organisms resistant to antimicrobials around the world, especially in resource-limited settings. Since 2022, Global Bridges at Mayo Clinic has worked to support independent quality improvement projects to address these health disparities through antimicrobial stewardship (AMS). With generous funding from Pfizer Global Medical Grants, 11 independent projects around the world are addressing this formidable challenge. In addition to improving the quality of care locally and regionally through these projects, each grantee contributes to improving global health through sharing and disseminating their findings, and forming a new global network of professionals with unique insights and expertise but common goals.
