Peter Ahabwe Babigumira

I am a pharmacist with the Global Health Security Project at the Infectious Diseases Institute (IDI). I gained a Bachelor of Pharmacy from the Mbarara University of Science and Technology and went on to complete my internship at the Mulago National Referral Hospital. I am currently pursuing a Master’s in Public Health at Makerere University School of Public Health. At the IDI Global Health Security Project, I serve as an interface between the project and Ministry of Health on AMR Policy and Practice issues, which has given me an opportunity to work on projects where science and policy overlap and to contribute working with Government of Uganda and it's partners to the achieving Global Health Security Agenda AMR targets in Uganda. I give strategic oversight to the Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) eLearning and call center at IDI. I have been a member of the Next Generation Global Health Security Network since 2017. I represent IDI on the AMR Task Force Subcommittee for Antimicrobial Consumption and Use: Logistics and Research Subcommittees of National Task force for Outbreaks: National Antimicrobial Consumption Steering Committee and Appropriate Medicines Use Advisory Group. I have received training in emergency logistics and management as well outbreak preparedness and response through World Health Organization, World food program and Infectious Disease Institute.
