The purpose of this research project is to study approaches to, and conditions for, Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) education among health practitioners. How AMR education can enable health practitioners in supporting the development of health literacy capabilities among local communities in Zimbabwe and South Africa are explored as part of the project. Drawing on the theoretical approaches of Health literacy capabilities and experiential learning, the project will use participatory research workshops as the data generating method. As such, the project has the dual purpose of building-capacity among workshop participants and generating data regarding AMR education. Generated data will be analysed using an retroductive method, emphasising theory development regarding ABR education from a health literacy capability perspective.The research process centers on two series of participatory research workshops. Combined with continuous support and reflective opportunities, they enable health practitioners to develop their approaches to ABR education and adapt these to their ongoing health practices. The research is expected, drawing on the experiences of the participants before, during and between the workshops, to result in new perspectives on AMR education.
