Recognizing global challenges-encouraging local change
We worked together with BUKO Pharma-Kampagne a German NGO to gather information on antibiotic resistance-its causes,consequences and challenges.Moreover we did a series of interviews to take a closer look at three different case studies in Tanzania(as mentioned below) which highlighted specific problems related to antibiotic resistance in Human health,Animal Health and Environment as well as structural problems causing.
· Childrens infection and antibiotic resistance
· Uncontrolled use of antibiotics in animal husbandry and its consequences
· Reduced awareness and lack of pharmacies in rural areas leads to high use and irrational use of antibiotics.
Our team met different interview partners in Dar Es Salaam,Dodoma,Morogoro municipal and Ifakara district.The project aimed to futher stimulate the public discussion on antibiotic resistance(ABR) as a massive global health risk and show the shared responsibility and promote national,local and personal options for action and change.
