    Pharm. Mrs. Martha Gyansa-Lutterodt, Director of Pharmaceutical Services, Ministry of Health Ghana, has been named by the United Nations (UN) as part of an ad hoc Interagency Coordination Group established by the global agency to provide guidance on the worldwide problem of antimicrobial resistance.

    In the announcement released on last Friday by the UN, Mrs. Gyansa-Lutterodt is one of 8 female experts from different regions of the world who will work with representatives of other UN agencies. According to the UN, the Interagency Coordination Group on Antimicrobial Resistance is tasked to provide practical guidance for ways required to ensure "sustained effective global action to address antimicrobial resistance."

    Mrs. Gyansa-Lutterodt with an incredible 30 years experience in public service has played an instrumental role in Ghana's effort to develop a national policy to guide the use, surveillance and distribution of antimicrobials for animal and human health purposes. She currently chairs Ghana's Antimicrobial Resistance Working Group, a multidisciplinary group made up of experts which has been in existence for more than five years exploring ways Ghana can control the ever-worrying phenomenon of antimicrobial resistance.

    She has numerous publications to her credit. She represented Ghana at the  66-, 67- and 68th World Health Assemblies to speak on the topic of resistance and strongly advocated for the passage of a resolution to tackle global antimicrobial resistance.

    Pharm. Mrs. Martha Gyansa-Lutterodt is a product of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology where she had her pharmacy undergraduate degree. Additionally, she has masters in Health Management Planning and Policy from Leeds University; Leadership and Governance from Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA). She is also a fellow of West African Post Graduate College of Pharmacists and Foundation fellow of Ghana College of Pharmacists as well as a member of the Pharmaceutical Society of Ghana.
