The RBA Initiative is enlisting local leaders as key players in influencing positive behaviors that can slow the spread of AMR. The discussion focuses on common behaviors accelerating the emergence and spread of AMR and how well the community can be engaged in tackling AMR. Through this program, the RBA Initiative increases the awareness and AMR understanding of this group. Local leaders share the message within their communities and promote positive behaviors towards antimicrobial use. We are always happy to hear different stories regarding antimicrobial use within local communities and the actions we can all take to combat AMR.
