Presentation 2: Planning for change: Severe Neonatal Infection Platform – AFRICA (SNIP-AFRICA) (Julia Bielicki)

Since the evidence base for neonatal sepsis management in LMICs with high prevalence of resistant bacteria is limited, a research architecture is required to flexibly and efficiently accommodate a range of activities to address corresponding research questions. SNIP-AFRICA represents such an architecture to be implemented in the sub-Saharan African setting through leveraging the expertise, experience and on-going research of the diverse SNIP-AFRICA partnership. SNIP-AFRICA has been explicitly planned with extensions and adaptations in mind to facilitate integration of new interventions, in particular new or repurposed antibiotics, into its overall work plan.
