Winner of two Antibiotic Guardian Awards
Become an Antibiotic Guardian
The Commonwealth Pharmacists Association, in collaboration with our member organizations, has been working to increase awareness of AMR since July 2016 by widely publicizing through our networks the Antibiotic Guardian initiative that started in England to encourage people to commit to better use of antimicrobials.
Antibiotic Guardian Pledges are grounded in the behavior change theory, acting as a driver to improve behaviors around antibiotic prescribing and antibiotic use. Antibiotic Guardian encourages everyone to do something, whether we are healthcare professionals who can think twice before prescribing antibiotics, patients who can ensure that they take medicines correctly or members of the public that will commit to hand hygiene. It also invites animal health professionals like veterinarians and farmers to commit to responsible sue of antibiotics.
