Study outline
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has been estimated to cause 10 million deaths each year by 2050. Speculating a higher and different distribution of resistant pathogens in Dhaka, Bangladesh- home of 166 million people, we are investigating the prevalence of Carbapenamase producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) spread in the local environment. Our aim is to understand the molecular epidemiology and extent of CPE dissemination from the perspective of endemicity.
