We are implementing AMR school clubs programme in Dodoma region,Tanzania.The programme consist of educating and empowering potential school children within each of the selected schools to become agents of change who inturn will encourage the community to adopt positive behaviors that will prevent the spread and emergency of antimicrobial resistance(AMR).
Last year RBA Initiative trained&empowered 160 students in three schools.The organization strive to roll out the AMR school Club Programme to more schools across a wider geographical area, to futher raise awareness of antimicrobial resistance. The programme also sensitize One Health approach as a key tool to contain antimicrobial resistance. RBA Initiative uses Arts&Craft,storytelling and set of fun activities for better understanding of antimicrobial resistance, encouraging creativity and innovation among the students through competitions like art& crafts AMR competition .We hope to reach a further 300 pupils this year, developing them as agents of change in the fight against AMR in their own communities.Changing peoples'' behaviour is not easy and the older a person is, the more they are set in their ways, through this program we are training school children in their formative years !
