The Series directs special attention towards the added value of interdisciplinary and international cooperation in global health research. Every first Tuesday of the month, speakers share insights into their research projects while focusing on research processes, methods as well as lessons learned. Following the 30-minute speaker’s presentation, the Series encourages an academic exchange between the speaker and the audience in a 30-minute Q&A session.
In this Academy Series, Alexandra Kulinkina and Joseph Habakurama shared insights from their research project in Rwanda on how to reduce overprescription of antimicrobial drugs using digital tools. The study is part of the Dynamic project which aims to aid sick children by improving clinical decision making and the quality of diagnosis in Tanzania and Rwanda.
