AMR (antimicrobial resistance)

Stik tik antibiotics (IFMSA-Morroco)

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 gave him no treatment, then he uses antibiotics 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 students We also made posters telling people to consult their doctors instead of just consuming antibiotics by themselves, and posted them in different doctors offices and places.
