Reduce incidence of Antimicrobial Resistance

Problem statement:

antimicrobial resistance is a big threat to our health universally. One of the main reason causing it is people using antibiotics randomly without any control or medical prescription. This is considered a normal thing in our country, and people are not aware of the danger of it.

Target groups and beneficiaries:

General population

Objectives and indicators of success:

Raise awareness of people about the danger of misuse of antibiotics
Indicator: number of people seing our video

Methodology:

We made a video describing the story of a man that used antibiotics randomly, it starts with his death scene, then a flashback of him getting out of the doctor for his sore throat, being angry because the doctor gae him no treatment, then he uses antibioyics randomly, then he gets infected by a multiresistant bacteria that doctors were unable to treat, and it ends with a message to the good use of antibiotics.
The video was filmed by us medical sudents
We also made posters telling people to consult their doctors instead of just consuing antibiotics by themselves, and posted them in different doctors offices and places.

Plans for evaluation:
