Distribution of Antibiotic Profiles and Antibiotic Resistance Associated with Tuberculosis Treatment Regimens from Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPS) in Africa

The aim of the project is to determine whether the antibiotic profile found WWTPS may be used as a proxy of community antibiotic usage. The antibiotic resistant bacteria (ARB) and antibiotic resistant gene (ARG) profiles in WWTPs and receiving environments in South Africa and other African countries will also be determined with the intention of providing mitigating strategies to prevent their release into the receiving environment.
